Official: Chelsea sign former PSG captain Thiago Silva on a free transfer

Former PSG captain Thiago Silva was a free agent after finishing this season as Champions League runners-up. He had already informed the French side that he will leave this summer.

Thiago Silva joined PSG from Milan in 2012 and has helped the club to gain glory in France. Everyone at PSG wanted to give him a fitting farewell by winning the Champions League but they lost 1-0 to Bayern Munich in the finals on Sunday.

After the defeat, Silva has now decided about his next destination. He has now signed a one-year contract with Premier League club Chelsea with an option to further extend a year.

Although Chelsea finished fourth last season, they conceded 54 goals in the Premier League. Lampard has been on the lookout to sign new defenders. Frank Lampard’s side has a shacky defence so the addition of a vastly experienced defender would definitely improve the backline.

Chelsea has already signed Ben Chilwell from Leicester City and Malang Sarr from Nice. Now they have added an experienced centre-back in the form of Thiago Silva to their squad.

Now the question arises, Thiago Silva will be 36 years next month so can he handle the pace and intensity of the Premier League at this age? Premier League has always been a physical league so can Silva live up to the standards of the English top-flight?

Silva is a free agent now, so even if he turns 36-year-old, signing such a coveted player on a free transfer is always going to be a successful deal. So Lampard’s Chelsea has decided to sign him and he will definitely prove his worth to the North London side.

Thiago Silva said after signing Chelsea: “I am so happy to be joining Chelsea. I am delighted to be a part of Frank Lampard’s exciting squad for next season and I’m here to challenge for honours. See you soon Chelsea fans, I look forward to playing at Stamford Bridge very soon.”

Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia said: “We are delighted to be able to add a player of Thiago Silva’s proven world-class credentials to our squad.”

“Having performed at the highest level for many years, we have no doubt his experience and quality will complement the many exciting talents we already have here”

“Thiago will be an excellent fit and we hope he can add some new trophies to his impressive list of honours.”

Chelsea has now signed five new players for the upcoming season: Timo Werner, Hakim Ziyech, Ben Chilwell, Malang Sarr (he will be sent out on loan) and Thiago Silva. Bayer Leverkusen’s Kai Havertz has also agreed to join Chelsea and the deal will be announced shortly.

The North London club has been very busy in this transfer window. After finishing fourth last season, it seemed they are determined to challenge Liverpool and Manchester City for the Premier League title in the upcoming season.
