Speaking to a radio station, Alves stated that if Thiago Silva were to choose La Liga over Ligue 1 and move to Barcelona, he would be coming to the best club in the world at this moment and it would be great for his career as well.

He went on state that he has also described the club to Thiago Silva and gave him an idea about all the advantages he would have at the club. It seems Dani Alves is eager to tap Thiago Silva to Barcelona.
