Thiago Silva admits Milan will face a rebuilding phase after this summer's exodus.
"I am not a mercenary, Milan was my home. On the other hand they made a lot of money on the deal. AC Milan paid 10million for me and sold me for 42million.
"It is true that Milan have lost some quality. They have also lost leading figures such as [Clarence] Seedorf, [Filippo] Inzaghi, and [Gennaro] Gattuso.
"Milan will have to rebuild the team. It will not be easy, but Allegri is an intelligent coach who will find solutions."
