Agent Paulo Tonietto confirmed that another Italian side was interested in Thiago Silva and said that he ‘doesn’t even know the name’ of the sporting director of Fiorentina.
Fiorentina was not in advanced negotiations with the Brazilian defender, who transferred to Chelsea last week on a free transfer, said his agent.
“They approached us only once, some months ago,” he Tuttomercatoweb told.
“So we were not talking about numbers or some other scenario.”
“I can assure you I don’t even know the name of the Fiorentina sporting director, the one who called me.”
“But I can tell you that Thiago was involved in another Italian side and that it was not even Milan.”
