World class Brazilian star has made big Chelsea contract decision!
Chelsea defender Thiago Silva is set to sign a one-year contract extension at Stamford Bridge.
After deciding to leave PSG in the summer to seek a fresh challenge in the game, Chelsea made their move very quickly to try and convince the Brazilian icon to make the move to the Premier League.
And Silva, 36, signed a one-year deal at Stamford Bridge with the option of a second when he joined the club as a free agent last summer, a move that has been praised by many who believe that he has made that back-line alot more solid.
And according to recent reports, Silva wants to activate that option and we are expected to keep the experienced defender for another campaign, as Thomas Tuchel is eager to keep the player that he did not want to let leave PSG last season
Many doubted the quality of Silva and whether he could still compete at the very highest level of the game, but he has come to the club and proven that he is still one of the very best central defenders in the game right now.
So if the reports are true and he now wants to make sure that he stays with the club, it is some great news for us, as there were a few rumours that a few clubs were eyeing up a possible deal.
Since his move to the Premier League, Silva has been a revelation in that back-line for the club, and it is easy to see just why he wants to stay, he is enjoying his football in the Premier League.
But we still firmly believe that we need to add another defender, or two, to that defence to mount a serious challenge for the Premier League next season
