Thiago Silva insists he's staying at AC Milan.

The Brazil defender penned a new deal with Milan last month.

"I never thought of leaving Milan," Silva told the club's official website. "But in football it is normal that you get offers from other clubs.

"I am very close to (Zlatan) Ibrahimovic, (Antonio) Cassano, Robinho, (Alexandre) Pato and (Mario) Yepes and they advised me to remain at Milan. I believe in Milan's strength for the new season.

"I want to end this season in the best possible way at the Olympics in London and then return immediately for another season at Milan."
