Thiago Silva has pledged his future to AC Milan.

The Brazil defender was linked with Real Madrid and Chelsea during the summer.

"Milan are my home. I am happy. The club is like my family. I hope to stay here at least until 2014," he told Sport Mediaset.

"The club has conducted a fantastic transfer campaign. I am not going to say that we'll win the Champions League and the Scudetto, but we'll realise at least one of these two objectives.

"As a defender, I would like to see Pato, Robinho, Dinho and Ibra on the pitch. I am ready to fight and maybe even play my part in this quartet of goalscorers.

"The important thing is that Nesta is by my side. He is a fundamental point of reference. A champion. We'll have to find the right balance in defence and midfield."
