PSG defender Thiago Silva admits he's told Brazil Olympics teammate Lucas Moura to make the move to Paris.

The Sao Paulo star is wanted by PSG and Manchester United.

"I talked to Lucas last week, when I saw that something was out in the press. I know they're talking, there are negotiations, and I hope he signs with PSG," Thiago Silva told El Mundo Deportivo.

"Lucas is doing incredible things with the ball. I praise Lucas, not because we play in the same team and are friends, but because he contributes much to the Brazilian national team, he's been excellent."
