Thiago Silva would welcome Juventus midfielder Diego at AC Milan.

Thiago Silva's fellow Brazilians Diego and Felipe Melo struggled in their first season in Turin, but the defender settled in at Milanello right away.

"When a team goes badly there is an ugly tendency to blame one or two players, when that really isn't the case," Thiago Silva told Tuttosport.

"Diego is the typical player who would be in his element at a side like Milan. If I had been asked for transfer advice, I would've told Adriano Galliani to sign him."
