Chelsea Confirm Thiago Silva Signing

Premier League giants Chelsea have officially announced the signing of Thiago Silva on a one-year deal, with the option of another.

The Blues announced the signing in a statement released on their official website, Chelseafc.com, on Friday.

Silva, 35, joined Chelsea on a free transfer from Paris St-Germain after their Champions League final defeat to Bayern Munich on 23 August.

He will bolster the Blues’ defence, which conceded the most goals (54) in the Premier League top 10 in 2019-20.

And speaking on his move from Ligue 1 to the Premier League, the former AC Milan defender said:”I am so happy to be joining Chelsea. I am delighted to be a part of Frank Lampard’s exciting squad.

“I’m here to challenge for honours and I look forward to playing at Stamford Bridge very soon.”

Silva, who has made 88 international appearances, played more than 200 games for PSG during his eight years in the French capital, winning seven consecutive Ligue 1 titles.

He is Chelsea’s fourth summer signing, following England left-back Ben Chilwell from Leicester and forwards Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner.

In the first window since the Blues’s transfer ban was lifted , Chelsea have also been linked with 21-year-old Bayer Leverkusen and Germany winger Kai Havertz.

Chelsea begin their Premier League campaign away at Brighton on Monday, 14 September.
