The defender has been increasingly linked in recent weeks with interest from the Catalan club, even with PSG maintaining that they will not sell him.

L’Equipe believe that PSG will increase Silva’s earnings by an additional €1.5m (£1.3m) a year, to boost his total earnings each season from €9.5m (£8.2m) to €11m (£9.5m).
