Paris : A C Milan has confirmed the club is in negotiations for the sale of star Brazilian defender Thiago Silva.

The Rossoneri`s vice-president Adriano Galliani met with Paris Saint-Germain officials in the French capital on Tuesday where he received a 50-million euro offer for the centre-back, Lancenet reported.

"There has been no agreement yet. We need to take our time but we will know shortly," Galliano said

Silva`s agent Paulo Fernando Tonietto said he was still uncertain about the 27-year-old``s future.

"There are negotiations taking place between Milan and Paris Saint-Germain, but I`m not sure yet if the club is prepared to sell him."

Silva has made 92 first-team appearances for Milan since joining the Italian Serie A club in 2009.

Paris Saint Germain was one of Europe`s top-spending clubs last season, outlaying more than 130 million U.S. dollars on new players.
