Fabrizio Romano has claimed on Twitter that Chelsea plan to keep Thiago Silva at the club next season as well. The Brazilian central defender joined Chelsea on a one-year contract in the summer of 2020 on a free transfer after leaving Paris Saint-Germain at the end of last season.
Romano, who is a well-known and well-respected journalist and work for The Guardian and SkySport, has claimed that the Chelsea board are very happy with Silva. New manager Thomas Tuchel likes the Brazilian as well and considers him as a great leader.
Thiago Silva and his agents will discuss with Chelsea about his 1 year contract extension in the coming weeks. No rush.
