Mikael Silvestre (born August 9, 1977 in Chambray-Les-Tours) is a French footballer, playing as a defender. He currently plays for Manchester United F.C., as well as France internationally.

He began his career with the French club Rennes in the 1995/96 season. His time at the club helped build his reputation, and in the 1997/98 season was signed by Inter Milan. He made 18 league appearances for Inter, as well as 6 European Cup games. Silvestre signed for Manchester United F.C. on September 10, 1999 for 3,500,000.

Silvestre is adept as both a centre-back and a left full-back, though he has stated that he prefers playing in the centre. His first season at Manchester Utd was not exceptional; replacing an injured Ronny Johnsen in the centre with Jaap Stam; but he has since improved and is now a regular first team member, being called up for France's national squad frequently. He received criticism for his performance in Euro 2004, where he gave away penalties to both England and Croatia, before France were knocked out by Greece in the quarter-finals.

Silvestre's most positive attribute is his pace, and he often sets up scoring opportunities. He is also noted for his crossing and tackling abilities. His place in the starting line up has been put in jeopardy by the arrival of fellow defenders Nemanja Vidic and Patrice Evra. Wes Brown's return to form has done little to help Silvestre's opportunities in the back line.
