Report: Chelsea Defender On Verge of Contract Extension Following Talks

A deal is 'imminent' for Thiago Silva to extend his contract at Chelsea for a further year, according to reports.

The 37-year-old will have been at Chelsea for two years once he completes the 2021/22 season after joining from PSG on a free transfer in 2020. 

Silva has exceeded expectation, playing in the form of his life, which was highlighted once again on Tuesday night against Juventus as he made a phenomenal goal line clearance to deny Alvaro Morata during the 4-0 win.

One down, three to go for the Blues in terms of defensive deals. Chelsea's gain with Silva is PSG's loss.
