PSG coach Carlo Ancelotti is delighted with their deal for AC Milan defender Thiago Silva.

The Brazilian's teammate, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, is also expected to follow him to PSG this week.

"He's one of the best defenders on the planet," said Ancelotti. "I'm really very happy with the arrival of Thiago Silva.

"He's a fantastic player and the whole world knows that he's one of the greatest. With him, as well as the others, we could have a very valid defence.

"I know Thiago well because I coached him for six months at Milan and he can certainly improve our defensive strength.

"The club have done some great work to bring in such a champion."
