Thiago Silva’s agent has talked up a potential move to Chelsea after claiming the defender will not sign a new deal with PSG.
The 32-year-old is regarded as one of the best central defenders in world football, having joined the Parisiens from AC Milan in 2012 and served Brazil with distinction.
Silva’s current contract expires in the summer and his representative Paulo Tonietto has been quoted by the Evening Standard as telling Sport Witness: “Chelsea are a big club. And the English league is the best in the world.
“We’re not negotiating a new contract, let’s see what happens before December. Thiago’s deal ends on June 30th 2017 if PSG don’t qualify for the Champions League. Everything is possible in football.”
Antonio Conte signed David Luiz from PSG in August but is still determined to strengthen his defensive options further.
