PSG defender Thiago Silva says he is calm about his future and insists it is not linked to that of boss Carlo Ancelotti.

The Brazil international moved to the Parc Des Princes in a €42million (£38.4million) deal from AC Milan last summer, reuniting him with boss Ancelotti who he previously worked under at the San Siro.

Ancelotti has been linked with a move away from the Ligue 1 champions this summer, with Real Madrid believed to be eyeing a move for the former Chelsea boss.

That prompted speculation Silva could follow him out of the PSG exit door, with Real's La Liga rivals Barcelona rumoured to be interested.

PSG chairman Nasser al-Khelaïfi is reportedly reluctant to let Silva, who has four years left on his contract, leave the club this summer and is ready to block any moves to sign him.

Silva has denied his destiny is tied to that of Ancelotti's and is currently focused on Brazil's upcoming Confederations Cup challenge.

He did hint, however, that he is keeping his options open over a possible summer move.

"I am only concerned about my immediate future, which is the Confederations Cup," he told L'Equipe. "About a transfer? I am calm; I'm leaving that to one side so far.

"I am happy at PSG. Yes, I came to PSG because of the presence of [director of football] Leonardo and Carlo Ancelotti, but that doesn't mean I would leave [if they did]."
