Brazil and Paris Saint-Germain star Thiago Silva has hinted that he could return to AC Milan before the end of his career.

The defender spoke to Gazzetta Dello Sport, and said it would be difficult to rule out a return to the club that sold him in 2012 to Paris for €42 million.

“Milan are in my heart, and always will be. I’m a big fan and I follow everything with a lot of passion: both Italian and European football need the real Milan.”

I’m pretty certain the feeling is mutual. Silva was a fan-favorite for Milanisti, playing at the club from 2009 until 2012, when ~that~ massive roster overhaul happened, including Gennaro Gattuso, Alessandro Nesta, Clarence Seedorf, Pippo Inzaghi, and Mark van Bommel departing the club. Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Silva were both sold to PSG in the span of four days.

Silva is 33, and will be representing Brazil in the World Cup. He also said he is “happy” at PSG, but that it was “never easy to talk about the future, but never say never in football. Everything is possible.”

“How could I say no to Milan? It’s a team that will always be in my heart. To come back, maybe to end my career, would be a wonderful thing.”

While Milan have some bigger fish to fry before looking to bring Silva back for a season or two, it sure would be nice to see him finish out his career in red and black.
