Reports indicate that Chelsea’s seasoned defender Thiago Silva has garnered “serious interest” from clubs in Saudi Arabia, despite signing a new contract as recently as February. Esteemed journalist Simon Phillips broke the news, revealing that there have been preliminary contacts regarding the 38-year-old Brazilian’s potential transfer.

While Chelsea is not actively pushing for Silva’s departure this summer. They remain open to the idea of selling another center-back during the current transfer window. Silva’s enduring quality in his late thirties has been impressive. It has earned him high praise from his teammate Cesar Azpilicueta, who described him as “amazing” in the previous season.

In February, Silva committed to a new deal with Chelsea that extends his stay at Stamford Bridge until the summer of 2024. Despite his age, the South American center-back continues to play a crucial role within the squad. However, incoming head coach Mauricio Pochettino will have the final say on the players he wishes to work with in the upcoming season.

Views on Saudi Interest in Silva

From our perspective, it would be wise to retain the experienced defender for the 2023/24 campaign. While there have been ongoing transfer speculations linking various Chelsea players to high-profile moves to Saudi Arabia. This includes the likes of N’Golo Kante and Kalidou Koulibaly. It is evident that Silva still has a lot to offer in the Premier League.

Even though, Pochettino might be looking to create a team full of young stars. He will still need some experienced players within the squad to guide the youngsters in their development. Also for tough situations during the season, experience will be key. Thiago Silva is one of the most experienced players not only in Chelsea but in the whole game.

The allure of bringing a player of Silva’s caliber to the Saudi Arabian league is understandable. Nevertheless, his contributions and experience make him an invaluable asset for Chelsea, and he can continue to make a significant impact in the Premier League.
