This means they’ve locked down two of their centerbacks for the time being, with Malang Sarr being the other. Cesar Azpilicueta, Andreas Christensen, Antonio Rudiger, and Thiago Silva, for example, have contracts that are about to expire. They will be able to begin talks with other clubs about a free move next summer in less than two months.
Marina Granovskaia and the Chelsea board of directors are not known for letting transactions come down to the wire like they have this season. Regardless, they’ve stated that the team wants to keep all of its centerbacks. The Blues are aware of the situation with Azpilicueta and Christensen, since it appears that their contracts will be renewed ‘when’ rather than ‘if.’ Rudiger and Silva are the unknowns. According to recent reports from Fabrizio Romano, Chelsea is ready to begin contract negotiations with Silva as the Brazilian aims to prolong his stay at Stamford Bridge.
After outstanding performances against Leicester City and Juventus recently, Thiago Silva is expected to begin contract discussions with Chelsea.
Silva, who is now 37 years old, has recently been playing some of his greatest games for Chelsea. This week, he received back-to-back starts for the first time in his career, turning in two outstanding displays against Leicester City and Juventus at home. When he wonderfully cleared Alvaro Morata’s attempt off the line against the Old Lady on Tuesday, the former Paris Saint-Germain centerback helped Edouard Mendy keep his clean sheet.
At the weekend, his defensive line held Leicester City’s devastating front line at bay, keeping Chelsea atop the Premier League table. Since joining the Blues under Frank Lampard’s tutelage, Silva has seldom put a foot wrong. Despite playing fewer minutes than Thomas Tuchel, he has played a significant role in several of the most important matches throughout his time in SW6.
