AC Milan will welcome Thiago Silva to Milanello on Sunday.

The Fluminense defender is joining Milan after resisting rival offers from Inter, Villarreal and Chelsea.

Thiago will fly to Milan for a medical on Sunday and will sign a four-year contract worth £1.75 million-a-season.

It's emerged that Thiago was convinced about Milan after speaking extensively with Serginho, Cafu and Leonardo.
