Thiago Silva has been reportedly offered to Chelsea, with his contract Paris Saint-Germain coming to an end.
The Brazilian’s contract with the Ligue 1 club is coming to an end by the end of this season and according to reports, Chelsea have been handed the opportunity to sign the defender on a free transfer.
Thiago Silva joined PSG from AC Milan in 2012 for around €42 million and has established himself as an influential player for the club in this span of eight years.
Silva will play his last game for Paris Saint-Germain against Bayern Munich in the Champions League final thus ending his long eight-year tenure at the club.
Chelsea boss Frank Lampard will be seeking out for defenders this transfer window after encountering high-profile defeats in the 2019/20 season.
Chelsea have been linked with West Ham’s Declan Rice and Atletico Madrid’s Jose Gimenez, but the Brazilian could present a far cheaper option.
Thiago Silva would add some significant experience to the backline but he won’t be a long-term solution for the Blues.
“It was not easy at all, there were difficult moments, but today, we deserved to be in the final,” Silva told RMC.
I am very happy with my team and how we behaved today. We tried not to concede a goal right until the end, because up top, we know that we are very strong and can always score.”
When pushed on his future, Silva admitted he wanted to continue his career in Europe.
“I don’t want to talk about that because it is not going to help us, but I want us to celebrate all together the last match with a title.
“I have already said a lot of times before I wanted to do, that I want to finish (my career) here in Europe.
“A decision was taken, now things are calm in my head.
“It will be in another club, but my heart will stay here [at PSG].”
