Thiago Silva on a free?
Earlier today, several Chelsea reporters put out that PSG star center back Thiago Silva is set to be offered to Chelsea on a free transfer. Earlier this summer the Brazilian had confirmed that he would not be playing for the French champions next season. This was interesting news to many clubs around Europe who are in the market for an experienced defender like Silva.
The seven time French Champion could help temporarily solve Chelsea's defensive woes as they were extremely poor in Frank Lampard's first season at the helm. Thiago Silva could bring his experience and leadership qualities to Stamford Bridge next season which many Blues fans on social media have said would be an excellent addition to the squad.
Personally, Silva would be a great addition to the squad for a year or two as he is thirty-five and is losing that excellent speed he once had. However, along with the rest of Chelsea fans on social media, he would be a great player to have in the dressing room as well as on the field as the young defenders at Chelsea need an experienced player to command them around. If the opportunity to grab the world class center back on a free transfer was available to Chelsea this summer it would be silly not to pick him up. The likes of Kurt Zouma, Fikayo Tomori, and Andreas Christensen could all learn a great deal from the Brazilian.
From us here at Chelsea Insider, it is definitely a smart decision to sign him.
