Silva in contract talks


Thiago Silva has confirmed that he is in talks with Chelsea over a new contract with the club.

He told club media: "We are talking about it.

“Probably everything will happen in the next few days. My intention and the club’s intention are the same: to stay together.

“I know that the club needs me at this moment, I’m here to help, there are young players. I think that with my experience I can help in this process of rebuilding the club. I am here for this, willing to do this. But I know that my responsibility is huge. I know we have a lot of work ahead of us.

“I’m very happy here. It’s a club I feel very comfortable in. God willing, we’ll go for a fourth season together, something that at the beginning I used to say: ‘We’ll do one season, then we’ll go to I don’t know where’, you know?

“I’m already close to my fourth season and I’m very happy.”
