Big Chelsea news: President confirms they want to do deal for Moving World class act
Fluminense president Mario Bittencourt has confirmed that the Brazilian outfit are hoping to sign Thiago Silva once his contract at Chelsea expires at the end of the season.
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 CHELSEA at the end of the season.
Journalist Jorge Nicola recently 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”.
Speaking to TNT Sports earlier this month after the Brazilian side won the Copa Libertadores for the first time in their history, Bittencourt confirmed his desire to sign Silva.
“I continue with this desire to bring him in. For the brilliant player he is, for his high performance at his age. That he’s a great Tricolor. I’m sure that one day he could play for Fluminense again.”
Thiago Silva came to CHELSEA and helped them to great success, when he leaves the club, fans will be sad but will wish him all the best we are sure.
There are some real talents at the club that could learn alot from him over the next few months, so him staying at the club until the end of the season will benefit alot of people at the club that is for sure.
