World class act ‘Opens talks’ to make Chelsea transfer exit

Chelsea praised for Silva signing

There has been some speculation that Thiago Silva has now opened talks about a move away from CHELSEA.

The Brazilian has been an incredible servant since joining on a free transfer from PSG in 2020. Silva has gone on to become a fan favourite and has really shown that he is one of the greatest of all-time.

However – with the club looking to the future now and heading into a different direction, there has been alot of speculation in the media that the Brazilian star is ready to pack his bags and leave the club at the end of the season.

Now journalist Jorge Nicola has told his YouTube channel that the 39-year-old’s talks to join Fluminese next year are “underway”. While this is over a summer move, Silva’s contract expiry date means that a winter exit is also possible – albeit a “small chance”.

The South American ace has been praised by teammates, like Benoit Badiashile, who told talkSPORT that he’s a “real leader”.

“First and foremost, it’s a real honour to play alongside him,” said Badiashile on Silva this year.

“And do you know what? For a young player like me, he’s someone that makes things easy. He’s a legend, isn’t he? He’s a real leader, he’s very, very experienced of course. Any of the advice that he gives me is always welcome, he’s advised me not only when we’ve been playing – he’s spoken to me during the game.

“But also before the game and in training as well. So he’s someone that you can only learn alongside. And as I say, it’s an absolute honour to line up alongside him.”
