Brazilian international Thiago Silva has made a promising start to his Chelsea career and is well loved by Chelsea fans.
Silva joined Chelsea last summer on a one year deal with an option to extend for another year.
New Fluminense manager Marcao has revealed that he is keen to bring Chelsea defender Thiago Silva to the club.
Silva is a product of the Brazilian outfit’s youth academy and was an important member of their senior side before he joined AC Milan in January 2009.
“Right on time, he [Silva] saw the message and said: ‘I’m going there to assist you,” Marcao revealed in a press conference on Wednesday, as reported by Globo Esporte.
“I said: ‘Hey! Not as an assistant, come to play here, come to help us, you’ll be very welcome’. A great affection, we exchange messages every day.
“Somehow, we help out there. And in the same way he helps here. God willing, soon he’ll be here with us too, being able to help on the pitch.”
