Veteran star Thiago Silva wants to extend Chelsea stay with a new contract

According to news from Metro, Thiago Silva wants to extend his stay with Chelsea by signing a new contract. The Brazilian expressed his desire to remain at the club after the Blues progressed to the Champions League quarter-finals.

The 36-year-old joined Chelsea this summer and despite his age, he has seamlessly adapted to the fast-paced nature of the Premier League. He has already played more than 20 games this season. However, he has missed a few games with injuries and Andreas Christensen took over in the interim.

The 36-year-old joined Chelsea this summer and despite his age, he has seamlessly adapted to the fast-paced nature of the Premier League. He has already played more than 20 games this season. However, he has missed a few games with injuries and Andreas Christensen took over in the interim.

Silva’s experience and leadership have been visible on the pitch and Chelsea look a far more secure side with him in the line-up. Chelsea have kept 9 league clean sheets in the 18 games he has played so far.

The former PSG man was on the sidelines with a hamstring issue but has since returned to action, starting against Porto. He has a one-year extension in his contract, which can be triggered by a mutual agreement. However, Silva spoke about his keenness to continue at the club.

‘I hope to continue like this. I want to continue to play at this level and get to the World Cup in 2022. Thomas Tuchel is doing an amazing job here at Chelsea.’
