Chelsea ace to extend contract and spurn a Brazilian club’s interest
Chelsea FC defender Thiago Silva is at the end of his contract with The Blues. With the 37-year-old set to become a free agent, Brazilian side Fluminense had hopes that they could bring back their former player to wrap up his career; however, they might have to wait.
According to Foot Mercato, the Chelsea leaders have started discussions with his entourage for a one-year contract extension. The only sticking point will be finding common ground when it comes to the wages Silva will want.
