Brazilian star Thiago Silva has impressed massively in his first season at Stamford Bridge. He has even earned comparisons to former blues legend John Terry because of his leadership skills at the back.
According to Fabrizio Romano, Chelsea is now set to activate the defender's contract renewal clause and keep him at Stamford Bridge until at least the summer of 2022. This comes as there have been rumours that the former PSG captain could leave the club at the end of the season.
Reputable football reported Fabrizio Romano took to his official Twitter handle to confirm the news of Thiago Silva's planned new contract.The Brazilian captain has been in top form for the blues this season. He has made an impressive 29 appearances across all competitions, scoring 2 goals.
Silva's new contract means the club can now afford to sell English centre back Fikayo Tomori. Tomori has been on loan at Italian side AC Milan this season.
