The Chelsea defender used to captain PSG and played alongside Neymar and Mbappe
Silva, 36, commented saying: ‘I hope I don’t meet you so soon Neymar. God forbid.’
The Blues centre back is a former PSG captain and led them to the final of the 2020 Champions League final, where they lost to Bayern Munich.
He left the French capital that summer to join Chelsea and after his coach at PSG Thomas Tuchel joined him at Stamford Bridge in January, the pair went on to win the Champions League last season.
They are currently preparing for tonight’s match at Juventus, having won their opening game of their European campaign this season against Zenit St Petersburg.

Messi said after Tuesday’s win that his partnership with Mbappe and Neymar will ‘get better and better with each game’.
‘It was a perfect night against a great opponent,’ Messi told Canal+. ‘For us, it was very important to win this game after Brugge [a 1-1 draw on matchday one].
‘I am very happy to have scored. I haven’t played much recently, I had only played one game here. I am adapting little by little. What is important is to keep winning.
‘Our relationship will get better and better with each game. We all have to grow together, increase our level of play. We have to continue.’
PSG are on four points following their first two matches, with the club looking to win Europe’s premier competition for the first time.
