Chelsea retain an option to extend Thiago Silva’s stay by a further season
Thiago Silva’s impressive start at Chelsea looks set to convince the club to take up the option to extend the Brazilian’s stay for a second season.
Negotiations ahead of Silva’s arrival over the summer saw Chelsea include the option to extend the central defender’s 12-month deal by a further year if he impressed.
Official discussions with the player are not expected to being until the new year, but Frank Lampard believes the 36-year old has been a key part of Chelsea’s impressive start to the season, and is keen to keep him at Stamford Bridge for a second campaign.
Chelsea conceded three goals away at West Brom on Silva’s Premier League debut but have conceded just once in four league games since, when the Brazilian has been in their side
Silva joined Chelsea as a free agent over the summer after spending the last eight seasons at Paris Saint-Germain, following a spell at AC Milan.
