Chelsea have announced that Thiago Silva has agreed to one-year contract extension with the club. Hence, the Brazilian defender will continue with the Blues for the next season.
The Blues owners are also in negotiations to extend the contract of Mason Mount before the start of the new season. However, negotiations are going very slow for the attacking midfielder.
CHELSEA HAVE ANNOUNCED A VITAL CONTRACT EXTENSION FOR THE NEXT SEASON
Chelsea have announced that Thiago Silva has signed a one-year contract extension with the club. Hence, the Blues have secured their most important senior player for the next season. This also provides them a strong base to again spend big in the next summer transfer window. The extension of Thiago Silva will also benefit the development of Benoit Badiashile. Thiago Silva has helped the January signing settle very quickly with the team.
Hence, this has also resulted in Kalidou Koulibaly dropping to the bench. Chelsea will also now hope that Thiago Silva also helps the other new signings in future settle quickly with the team. The Brazilian defender also continues to perform brilliantly in every match of the season. Club manager Graham Potter was also very happy with extension. He further said, “He’s got a football brain that is pretty much above everybody. He understands the game, and he’s played for so long at the highest level. Thiago is a leader on the pitch, leader off the pitch, a really important player.”
THE BLUES ALSO WANT TO SIGN A MARQUEE FORWARD IN THE NEXT SUMMER TRANSFER WINDOW
According to reports, Chelsea owners are again ready to spend big in the next summer transfer window. They have already spent over 500 million in their first 2 transfer windows as owners. However, the owners would like to refresh the team again. The number one priority on the list is to sign a new marquee forward in the next summer transfer window. It is because Romelu Lukaku and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang are certainly not going to stay with the club for the next season.
Hence, Chelsea at moment also have only Kai Havertz and David Fofana as their forward options. A report also claims that the Blues are ready to sell Kai Havertz for the right price. Hence, a new star forward has to be the priority. The report also claims that Victor Osimhen is one of the top of the list. However, Manchester United are also in the race for his signature. The Red Devils wanted Victor Osimhen to replace Cristiano Ronaldo and Martial in the team.
Hence, Chelsea should surely keep a number of other options. However, at the moment, the Blues will hope that they can at least qualify for the Europa League for the next season. At the moment, the Blues are currently 9th in the Premier League table. Hence, at the moment, they are not even going to play in UEFA Conference League.
