Thiago Silva set for Milan move

Turns out I was wrong to trust the Spanish press so much: I wrote on Tuesday that Thiago Silva was on the brink of a move to Villareal. This is the 24 year old Brazilian centre back, playing for Fluminese, who Robinho recommended to Mark Hughes. Anyway, he's agreed a move to AC Milan, according to Gazzetta dello Sport. And this is an actual agreement, not a 'on the brink of' one.

UPDATE 08.30 Thiago Silva in the Daily Telegraph today - apparently 'Chelsea and Manchester City [are] poised for battle' over him. Which goes to show that even the serious press can get caught out on stories like this.
