The veteran Paris Saint-Germain and Brazil centre-back is set to move to Stamford Bridge at the expiry of his contract this summer after eight years at the Parc des Princes.
After eight years on the books at Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain, a vastly-experienced South American is preparing to take on a new challenge.
Chelsea are said to have agreed a two years contract with Thiago Silva after PSG‘s Champions League final loss.
The 35-year-old Brazilian, Silva apparently played his last game for the Parisians as they went down 1-0 to Bayern Munich in Lisbon. And Sky Sports says the Brazilian will now move to west London for the 2020/21 season.
Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has been looking to improve on his defensive records following a bad defensive record last season.
The Bleus manager sees Silva as a cheaper option for the club, who have already spent large fees on Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech.
The club has also been linked lately with Manchester cities’ John stones and Brighton defender Lewis Dunk but they seem to be unattainable.
The Blues are also close to agreeing a deal for Leicester City left-back Ben Chilwell and Bayer Leverkusen attacker Kai Havertz.
