Thiago Silva Signs Contract Extension With Chelsea

Thiago Silva has renewed his contract with Chelsea for another season.

The Brazilian center-back renewal comes on the same day as Thomas Tuchel's new two-year extension to his Chelsea contract, with the German head coach now staying on until 2024.

Silva’s initial contract lasted one year with the option of an extension for another, which is the clause Chelsea have exercised.

A Chelsea statement praised his professionalism and commitment, calling the 93-cap international a ‘composed and classy influence' at the heart of their defence from the moment he arrived.

Blues director Marina Granovskaia added: ‘'When we brought Thiago Silva in last summer, we knew we were adding a world-class player to the squad.

‘'Thiago has duly shown everyone at Chelsea his immense quality throughout this season, and he has had a huge influence on and off the pitch for us.

‘'We said when he signed that we hoped Thiago would add new trophies to his impressive list of honours, and he has done just that with our success in the Champions League.
