Chelsea Fc could have a very busy transfer window next season, as the blues will have one or two spaces to fill in their team upon the expiration of some first team players contracts.
Recall that the player signed for the blues last summer on a free transfer from Psg, and his performance with the blues earned him a contract extension with Thomas Tuchel's team during the summer.
Currently age 36, the Chelsea board would probably be planning for life after the Brazilian, as he would be 37 next season, and it wouldn't be wise to have a player at that age marshal the defense of Thomas Tuchel's team, considering the intensity of the premier league.
I thus feel that if Chelsea should go for any replacement for Silva next summer, it should be his fellow countryman who plays for Psg, in the person of Marquinhos.
Reports had it that Chelsea made a last minute bid for the Brazilian this summer, but his club side Psg declined.
I will thus be stating reasons why Chelsea should put in another bid for the Brazilian next summer.
Similarities in style of play
Signing a Marquinhos for Thiago Silva will be a like for like transfer for the blues, as the two players share similarities in their style of play.
Relationship with Tuchel
Another reason why Chelsea should sign Marquinhos is due to his close relationship with blues head coach Thomas Tuchel.
Tuchel worked with the Brazilian defender at Psg, and wouldn't find it difficult in helping him settle at Chelsea.
Lastly on why Chelsea must prioritize Marquinhos signing as a replacement for Thiago Silva is due to his versatility.
The Brazilian can operate as a central defender and also as a holding midfielder, a position where Chelsea are currently lacking options.
Should Chelsea sign Marquinhos or give Thiago Silva a new contract?
