Thiago Silva played his last game for Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League final against Bayern Munich, which the German side won 1-0 to lift the trophy.
Thiago Silva will turn 36 in September, but he has been eyed by Frank Lampard, as the Blues boss seeks to find a short-term solution for his poor defence, after the Chelsea defence conceded a shocking 54 goals in the Premier League alone.
However, PSG boss Thomas Tuchel isn’t too keen on losing Silva and will be hoping he stays at the club beyond this season.
“Thiago was my captain and it was a pleasure to have a player with quality and personality like him,” Thomas Tuchel told RMC Sport after the 1-0 defeat to Bayern Munich in the Champions League semi-final.
“He extended his contract with us for two months. He gave his heart and energy on the pitch, he gave everything to win this Champions League. He deserved to win it. We went through some tough times, there were some big disappointments. I’m absolutely proud that he was my captain.
“We’re going to talk to the club now, with him, to clarify the situation. No matter what the decision is, he’ll still be my player. He’s in my heart and it was incredible to play with him.”
According to reports, Thiago Silva has already agreed a two-year deal with Chelsea and the deal is expected to be confirmed in a few days time.
