Thiago Silva just left Milan, but it seems like Milan is a hotbed for Brazilians. I skimmed through Milan's last 10 years of players and here's just some of the names that have played for them:

Ronaldinho
Ronaldo
Rivaldo
Robinho
Kaka (and his brother)
Alexandre Pato
Cafu
Serginho
Emerson
Leonardo
Roque Junior
Dida
Mancini
And of course, Thiago Silva

Damn, thats a lot of Brazilians. Are there any other clubs who have major influxes of foreigners from a certain nation???

Chelsea have had a fair few Portuguese recently with Carvahlo, Paulo Ferria, Thiago, Bossingwa, Deco and Mou and once you factor in our Brazilian players (Alex, Ramires, Belleti, Piazon and David Luiz) you've got alot of Portuguese speakers

As pointed out just once, when I think of Barca, I do remember on that Dutch generation. We've had a fair few amount of Netherlands players come here. Not too many in the recent years though.

Inter has a thing with Argentinians don't they?
