Matching his idol Paolo Maldini - who won seven Serie A titles with AC Milan - is a goal for Paris Saint-Germain's Silva.
Paris Saint-Germain defender Thiago Silva has revealed he would like to emulate his idol Paolo Maldini by playing until he is 40.
The 32-year-old Brazil international who has won the Serie A and four Ligue 1 titles with his current club PSG, is hoping he can follow the steps of the AC Milan and Italy great Maldini.
"I hope to play up to 40," Silva told Canal Football Club. "One of my idols at AC Milan, Paolo Maldini, has managed to do it.
"I had the chance to play with him [in] the last six months of his career.
"I saw how he was investing. I will follow his path and my body will tell me if I am able."
Silva's current deal with PSG expires in June 2017 and the defender has been linked with a return to AC Milan.
