Official: Chelsea complete the signing of Thiago Silva

Chelsea have announced the signing of Brazil star Thiago Silva following his exit from Paris Saint-Germain.

The 35-year-old has penned a one-year deal with Chelsea, who have the option to extend it by another year.

Centre-back Silva will bring experience, leadership and quality to Frank Lampard’s defence.

Despite his age, Silva remains a top-level defender as he proved again in this season’s Champions League.

Speaking after signing his contract, Silva said he has moved to London to win trophies.

“I am so happy to be joining Chelsea,” said Silva. “I am delighted to be a part of Frank Lampard’s exciting squad for next season and I’m here to challenge for honours.

“See you soon Chelsea fans, I look forward to playing at Stamford Bridge very soon.”

Silva is the third defender to join Chelsea in the past few days after they signed Ben Chilwell from Leicester and free agent Malang Sarr.
