PSG defender Thiago Silva admits chatting with Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney in Brazil last week.

Thiago Silva has made it clear he'd welcome Rooney to Paris this summer.

"I like Wayne Rooney a great deal," said Silva, 28.

"He is a great player, and every time I've come up against him, he has scored a goal. He often makes the difference.

"I would really love Rooney to sign for PSG - he would be a huge reinforcement for our club.

"We spoke after the Brazil-England game, but it was more about the match we had played than about transfers."
