It is no surprise after series of incredible performance from the Brazilian that a contract renewal was close to the table as a reward for his laudable performances this season.
He was signed on a free transfer from Paris Saint Germain early this season and has been that glue for chelsea that made their Defense line so impenetrable.
Last season Chelsea were known by opposition fans to be “Goal givers” to other teams as they could barely defend their goal and Chelsea having Kepa in his worst form further worsened their situation.
Thaigo Silva original contract with Chelsea was that he would be with the team for a year but his performance since he joined has attracted chelsea into being convinced on giving him an extra year to play with the club.
Fabrizo Romano gave his thought on Thiago Silva renewing his contract for chelsea during his podcast session with HERE WE GO and he said;
Chelsea are happy having Thiago Silva right now, and there is no rush in pushing for a contract renewal as chelsea already have an option to extend his current contract by one year.
Naturally a player at his age 36 should be fatigued and thinking of retiring from playing football but Thaigo Silva is just that defender that has effectively been able to break past that law of nature, as he took on a challenge to come into a super fast paced league and dominated.
His performance this season is enough to crown him the best Defender currently in the premier league as he has been an integral part of the team and he has brought his wealth of experience in cordinating the Defense line and instilling confidence in the team.
Thiago Silva is currently a favorite amongst lots of chelsea fans and they would be very happy with the board if they can secure a new contract for the Brazilian.
