Thomas Tuchel provided an update on Silva's future back in September stating that his stay at the club depends on him.

He said: "It’s on him. I cannot answer this question right now. Hopefully he can continue to perform on this kind of level. That’s all it needs to stay here. It’s as easy and as clear as that, we want top performance when you play for Chelsea you need to deliver and that’s what he’s doing.

"He is a top professional, is a given because otherwise it would not be possible that he plays on that kind of level for so many years. The age does not play a role.

"The only question we need to ask at the end of the season, is he still on the level that we need at Chelsea to compete for every competition? Yes or no. It’s as easy as that and we have time for that, we don’t need to answer that question right now. He is in a good place and we are happy."
