Thiago Silva has revealed that he is open to a return to AC Milan as the club will always have a place in his heart.

The Brazil international widely considered as one of the world's best performing centre-backs at the moment.

The 28-year-old told reporters that he would be open to a return to the Rossoneri before ending his successful career, having lifted the Serie A title and the Italian Super Cup during his time at the San Siro between 2009 and 2012.

"Yes, there could be great opportunities to return to Milan one day. All the good things in my life I miss, among them Fluminese and Milan." he told Simona Ventura TV, despite insisting that he is happy at his current club Paris Saint-Germain.

Silva left Italy for Les Parisiens last summer, alongside Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic. PSG are expected to win their first league title for over a decade in the coming weeks, after being taken over by multibillionaire Qatari owners in 2012.

The defender has recently been linked with a move away from Paris, despite a fruitful first season at the Parc des Princes, with PSG also reaching the quarter-final stage of the Champions League under Italian manager Carlo Ancelotti.

Silva also spoke of his first visit to an AC Milan match before signing for the club: "I still remember the first time I went to the San Siro. I was in the stands to watch AC Milan v Fiorentina. From then on, I wanted to belong on that stage."

Meanwhile, Silva's long-term mentor Ancelotti has been linked with a move to manage Real Madrid, with PSG proprietors expected to appoint Arsene Wenger as his successor.
