Chelsea player signs new contract

Thiago Silva suggests he would sign another Chelsea contract to extend his stay at Stamford Bridge. Silva, 37, has just finished a truly exceptional individual year during the 2021/22 season. The veteran Brazilian defender ended up with 48 appearances across all competitions this campaign for Chelsea, which included the Premier League final day 2-1 victory at home to Watford. Despite his age, he’s been one of the most consistent and trusted players under Blues manager Thomas Tuchel.

Following a thoroughly successful start to life at Stamford Bridge, which included winning the Champions League for the first time in his career having joined from PSG in the summer of 2020, Silver continues to belie his age. This season he has maintained the exceptionally high levels of performance that have made him integral to Thomas and a firm favourite with Chelsea fans.

He has already racked up 22 appearances this campaign, showcasing his customary composure and reading of the game in the heart of our defence. The 37-year-old also opened the scoring in our away fixtures at Tottenham and West Ham, and added the Super Cup to his collection after our triumph in Belfast. 

He will be hoping that is not the last piece of silverware he gets his hands on this term with five separate trophies still up for grabs.
