Real Madrid are ready to make a final push for AC Milan defender Thiago Silva.

With Inter Milan pricing Douglas Maicon out of a move to Madrid, the focus will now turn to Brazil international Thiago.

Despite Milan declaring Thiago not for sale over the weekend, Real intermediaries are convinced a bid of €20-25 million would convince the Rossoneri to sell.

Only yesterday, Thiago admitted he was flattered to be mentioned with Real and refused to rule out moving to Madrid in the future.
