The Brazilian defender Silva was hoping to remain with PSG for two more years but was informed by the club’s sporting director Leonardo that his contract would not be extended beyond the end of the Champions League campaign, L’Equipe reported late on Monday.

The 35-year-old joined the French side from AC Milan in 2012 and made over 300 appearances, winning seven league titles, five League Cups and four French Cups.
