Silva: “PSG are a step up from United”

4599879PSG defender and Brazil captain Thiago Silva believes Angel Di Maria will make a step up once he formalises his move to the French champions.

The Argentine underwent a medical ahead of a proposed £44.3m transfer to the French capital and Thiago Silva welcomed his soon-to-be teammate by claiming the former Real Madrid man was moving to a bigger club.

“I think that people now need to respect PSG as a club, and our position as one of the big clubs in Europe,” he said.

“Real Madrid and Barcelona are probably on another level, but after that if you are joining PSG it means you are probably taking a step up.”

“We went further than any English clubs in Europe last year – even beating the English champions.

“Every season we keep our best players despite much interest, and always add the best players in Europe.

“How many clubs can say that? The vision our owners have for this club is very clear, and that is for PSG to be the best.”

PSG have won five league titles in their 44 year history and had not won the league for 19 years until they claim the first of three consecutive titles in the 2012-13 season.

A step up, of course.
