Chelsea signed Thiago Silva on a free transfer from PSG, and the 36-year-old has already made a huge impact in the Chelsea defence, and the Blues had kept five clean sheets in a row, before conceding against Sheffield United.

PSG has been hit with injury problems this season, and PSG sporting director Leonardo, has hinted that the club likely made a mistake in letting go of Thiago Silva and Edinson Cavani.

He said: “At one moment, we have to say “what are we going to do?”

“We spoke clearly with them. It was a moment where we could not give them exactly what they wanted. It was a financial and generational problem.

“It was the moment to count on Marquinhos and Kimpembe. The decisions were difficult to take. Aside from that, we could have made a mistake.”

PSG have lost two of their three opening Champions League games this season, with Mauro Icardi, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe all currently sidelined.
