Silva committed to PSG

Paris St Germain centre-back Thiago Silva has stressed he will honour his long-term contract with the capital club, despite being heavily linked with a summer move to Barcelona.

Rumours? I have a four-year contract with Paris St Germain and I will respect this.

The season will start as the last one ended. I'll wear the jersey of Paris.

The coach (Laurent Blanc) has set me free so I can enjoy my vacation (after the Confederations Cup), but count on me for the Trophee des Champions against Bordeaux on August 3.

He asked me if I wanted to come back sooner, and I want to resume July 30.
