Silva ready to sign new AC Milan deal

Silva’s current contract with AC Milan is set to expire in the summer of 2011.

“I want to remain here at Milan until my contract runs out in 2016, and then I want to sign another four-year deal,” Silva said in an interview with Milan Channel.

“I really hope that [vice-president Adriano] Galliani is watching this interview and that he knows what to do next.”

The 27-year-old, who has recently been linked with a move to Barcelona, joined AC Milan from Fluminense in the summer of 2009.
