Correspondent Kang Dong-hoon = Chelsea (England) defender Thiago Silva (38) has admitted that he is negotiating a new contract. He has already been reported one after another that he will extend his contract, and as much as he himself admitted, it is virtually certain that he will continue to accompany him.
Silva said in an exclusive interview with global media ‘ESPN’ on the 2nd (Korean time), “I am currently negotiating a contract extension. It will probably be completed in a few days.” I know,” he said.
Although the specific contract period was not mentioned, locals are observing a year. The previous contract is expected to be extended from June 2023 to June 2024. If that happens, Silva will wear a Chelsea uniform and accompany him for four years.
British media ‘Football London’ said, “Chelsea sees catching Silva as the best choice. While coach Graham Porter (47, England) plans to build a team with a focus on young players in the future, he plays a supportive role on and off the field and plays a role in the project. will be the center of the 메이저놀이터
Silva stepped on the English Premier League (EPL) stage for the first time in his career when he moved to Chelsea after his contract with Paris Saint-Germain (France) expired in the summer of 2020. However, at the time, a ‘question mark’ followed. It is true that he was a ‘legend’ who once dominated world football, but his age was a problem.
But this was just a whim. He reliably centered the back line. In his last two seasons, he made 82 official appearances. In the process, he lifted the European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League (UCL) championship trophy for the first time in his life. In the midst of such performance, the contract was extended in January of last year.
Silva has been leading the defensive line this season as well. In particular, there has been a lot of change in the defensive position, and even though the main players have left due to injuries, they are steadily participating without any change in their position. It’s hard to imagine Chelsea’s defense without him now. He appeared in 23 matches in all competitions.
