Thiago Silva has dropped a bombshell by admitting Alessandro Nesta is leaving AC Milan. The defenders form a solid partnership at the back and Nesta seems to have recovered fully from his injury problems.

"It's a shame, as in my view it's Sandro's last season with Milan," the Brazilian told Sport Italia television.

"It would be a great shame to see him go at the end of the current campaign."

There had been reports that Nesta was considering an end to his career where it began, back at Lazio.
