“Thiago, thank you for eight unforgettable years, full of lasting memories, for your participation, dedication and your aura,” Parisian club president Nasser Al-Khulaifi said in a statement.
“You will forever be one of the best players in history, and your legendary position here at Paris Saint-Germain will forever be.”
Silva, who came from AC Milan in 2012, won the league title seven times, the cup five times and the League Cup six times.
