Thiago Silva has been compared to Paulo Maldini

Thiago Silva will be out of contract this summer.

The veteran defender’s contract with the Blues ends this summer and has been phenomenal for Chelsea for all this time.

In the game against Liverpool, the 39-year-old was toe-to-toe with Darwin Nunez who is known for his lightning pace.

Chelsea legend Tony Cascarino has compared the defender to Italian legend Paulo Maldini and requests his former club to tie the Brazilian to a new contract.

“Thiago Silva’s performance was just extraordinary at the back,” cooed Cascarino on the Weekend Sports Breakfast.

“I just laugh at someone who is 38, gets in a one-on-one with Nunez, who is lightning quick and, ok, might catch half-a-yard but he doesn’t get away from Thiago Silva, which is extraordinary. Just brilliant defending.

“He was outstanding again for Chelsea, Thiago Silva. He’s got [Paolo] Maldini in him. [He could] play until 40 quite comfortably.

“If Chelsea didn’t offer a contract to him at the end of the season there will be plenty that would, without a doubt. I would if I was in a management position.”
