Player set to undergo Chelsea medical on Thursday

According to Sky Sports, Brazilian centre-back Thiago Silva is due to undergo a Chelsea medical on Thursday despite the efforts of PSG boss Thomas Tuchel to keep Silva at the French club.

Silva has reportedly agreed a two year deal with Chelsea after leaving PSG following their Champions League final defeat to Bayern Munich on Sunday.

Silva won seven Ligue 1 titles during his time in France, but leaves the club having failed to achieve the European success desired most in Paris.

After the 1-0 defeat to Bayern over the weekend, Silva said: “It was my last game in Paris. I am sad. I apologise to the fans.

“I thank all the fans for their love. I will return to Paris and this club that I love in another role.

“I want to play three to four years still and be part of Brazil team in the Qatar World Cup.”
