Chelsea center-back Thiago Silva has revealed what Frank Lampard did after agreeing to join the Blues.As soon as I said 'yes',he sent me a photo of the two of us shaking hands with us as national team captain in 2013,Silva told FourFourTwo.
It was a pleasant surprise.He understood exactly what I needed at this stage of his career, perhaps because he made a similar move from Chelsea to Manchester City when he was 36 years old.I didn't think twice about it when I heard Chelsea was interested in me - not just because of their story,but because Willian and David Lewis always complimented them.
Marina Granovskaia,club director called me after I agreed and then threw up on Frank.He went through the translator because I still couldn't speak English and his accent was even louder for me!
Chelsea have reportedly encountered obstacles with a possible move away from Bayern Munich defender David Alaba.
The 28-year-old is out of contract until the end of the season,which means he is available for a free transfer to the club.
The Blues are said to be a stakeholder as Thomas Tuchel hopes to form a squad after arriving at Stamford Bridge,with Real Madrid also considering a move to the Austria international.
However,according to the Daily Telegraph,Chelsea will not be able to reach a deal for Alaba unless it significantly reduces current salary requirements.With Alaba in mind that affected teams do not need to charge hefty transfer fees,the defender appears to be hoping to split the difference by demanding a wage of around £400,000 a week.That salary package will make him the highest-paid Chelsea player so far and the club is reluctant to meet those requirements.
