Chelsea captain Thiago Silva said that he has asked Dybala if he’s joining Chelsea.
Thiago Silva admits he asked Paulo Dybala to join Chelsea after reports linked the forward with a move to Stamford Bridge.
The Argentine has recently been linked by the Italian press with a move to the Blues this summer. The World Cup winner reportedly has a €12m release clause in his contract at his current club AS Roma.
While talking to Sky Sport Italia, Chelsea captain Thiago Silva said that he has asked Dybala if he’s joining Chelsea, saying: “I saw Paulo Dybala here, they [the media] talk about him coming to Chelsea. I’ve talked with him and asked him if he is coming.
“He is a world class player. I would love to play with him and it would be a massive signing. Let’s see.”
Dybala joined Roma last season after the expiration of his contract at Juventus but has been plagued by injuries since making the move.
Roma manager Jose Mourinho was asked about the reports that Dybala can sign a contract with Chelsea: “I don’t know about about his contract”, said Moruinho.
“But obviously I talk to Paulo like I do with all of my players.”
