Barcelona president Sandro Rosell hints that the club would be willing to pay anything to sign Thiago Silva from Paris Saint-Germain.

Barcelona president Sandro Rosell has admitted that the club want to sign defender Thiago Silva and has hinted that they would be willing to pay anything to lure him away from Paris Saint-Germain.

The Catalan giants are determined to strengthen their back line with the arrival of a world-class centre-half and Silva, who captained PSG to their first Ligue 1 title in 19 years last season, seems to fit the bill.

However, his French employers, who spent £36m to recruit the Brazilian international from AC Milan last summer, are currently unwilling to negotiate with Barca over any potential transfer, Rosell has revealed.

Marca.com quotes him as saying: "Thiago Silva is a player we want - the board as much as the coach. When it comes to him, the price is not an issue.

"We are negotiating with people for whom money is not a factor. And if they're not willing to sit down and talk, we can't do anything.

Silva has four years remaining on his reported £10.3m-a-year contract with PSG.
