Thiago Silva insists he was the deciding factor in Zlatan Ibrahimovic leaving AC Milan to join PSG.
According to the Brazilian, back in 2012, he was the one who had a word with Ibrahimovic and was the deciding factor in the Swedish legend joining PSG.
Silva had no problem in making the change, but Zlatan took a little more persuading.
In an interview with France Football, it wasn’t a case of persuading but more a case of “if you go I’ll go.”
“I remember Ibrahimovic called me and asked: ‘Are you really signing for PSG?’”
“I answered: ‘Yes, I’ve just signed.’”
“Then he said: ‘I’m not joking! If you don’t go, I won’t sign.”
“And if you lie to me, I’ll be coming for you!’”
