Antonio Cassano considering leaving AC Milan

Forward Antonio Cassano says he’ll consider leaving AC Milan now

that it appears defender Thiago Silva is moving to Paris

Saint-Germain.

Speaking at Italy’s European Championship camp, Cassano says,

”I’m playing the European Championship, then afterward I’ll think

about staying at Milan or leaving.”

Cassano adds that selling Silva is ”a crime,” adding that the

Brazilian is ”the best defender in the world, and shouldn’t be

sold for any price.”

Italian media are reporting that PSG will buy Silva for ?40

million ($50 million), plus ?10 million ($12.5 million) in

bonuses.

Cassano transferred to Milan midway through the 2010-11 season

after falling out with Sampdoria when he allegedly insulted club

president Riccardo Garrone with a profanity-laced verbal tirade. He

has also played for Bari, Roma and Real Madrid.
