Berlusconi: There is nothing that I can do to keep Thiago Silva

AC Milan owner and president Silvio Berlusconi has conceded that he is powerless to prevent Thiago Silva from joining Paris Saint-Germain.

Italian sources claim that Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani is currently in the French capital conducting negotiations with PSG, who are readying a mega bid for the Brazilian defender.

Berlusconi has given a strong indication that the Rossoneri will be unable to resist PSG's lure as he admits the club need to balance their books.

"Our financial situation is bad, there is nothing I can do about Thiago," he is quoted by La Stampa as saying.

"I have been offered €46 million."

The 27-year-old, who joined Milan from Fluminense in 2009 in a €10m deal, made 36 competitive appearances this season.
