Chelsea handed major Thiago Silva boost before Tottenham

Chelsea boost as star defender pens new contract


Premier League giants Chelsea have, on Monday evening, confirmed that a key member of the club’s backline has put pen to paper on a new contract.

Blues’ concerns

The situation at the heart of the club’s defence has of course proven a major concern for Chelsea of late.

This comes with no fewer than four of the club’s defenders, until today, having been poised to depart Stamford Bridge upon the expiration of their respective contracts next summer.

The players in question? Antonio Rudiger, Andreas Christensen, Cesar Azpilicueta and Thiago Silva.

Losing one, or potentially several of this quartet would of course mark a hammer blow for Thomas Tuchel and co., who, just last year, confirmed their tag as the continent’s finest courtesy of a triumph over Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City in the Champions League final.

Silva staying put

As alluded to above, though, on Monday evening, at long last, those of a Chelsea persuasion have been afforded some positive news when it comes to the future of the club’s defensive stars.

This comes in the form of confirmation that one such player, in the form of Thiago Silva, has put pen to paper on fresh terms.

The veteran Brazilian, amid another stellar campaign to date, has signed on the dotted line through the summer of 2023, to keep him in west London for the next season-and-a-half:
