Paris St. Germain have finalized the first half of their jaw-dropping double swoop of AC Milan stars on Saturday, completing the deal to land Brazilian centerback Thiago Silva.
PSG signed Silva to a five-year contract on Saturday after completing a 42 million-Euro transfer for him. Now the French club can turn its attention to completing a deal for Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who has become a more difficult transfer target for Paris St. Germain to land.
Silva is one of the top centerbacks in the world and joins a stable of PSG central defenders that includes fellow Brazilian Alex, Uruguayan Diego Lugano and French defender Mamadou Sakho. Now the Paris club will be looking to finalize a deal with Ibrahimovic in order to pair him with recently acquired Ezequiel Lavezzi ane Argentine playmaker Javier Pastore.
