According to French media outlet L’Equipe via Daily Mail, Paris Saint-Germain boss Thomas Tuchel is desperately trying to get Paris Saint-Germain to keep captain and star defender Thiago Silva at the club amid the Brazilian’s imminent transfer to Chelsea.

Following PSG’s Champions League final defear to Bayern Munich, Silva announced he will leave PSG and reports claim he has already agreed to join Chelsea on a one year deal with an option to extend for another year.

Tuchel is trying to make a last-ditch attempt to keep Silva in Paris by persuading the club to offer the Brazilian defender a new contract.

After PSG’s 1-0 defeat to Bayern on Sunday, 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.”
