A huge section of Chelsea supporters was buzzing after they discovered that Thiago Silva is all set to stay for another season.
Fabrizio Romano explained that the Brazilian wanted to remain a Blue until 2022 and that the last details of his extension were being discussed.
Chelsea fans have been desperate to hear this update for some time.
Here’s how they reacted on Twitter:
Silva has certainly endeared himself to the Chelsea faithful following his arrival from Paris Saint Germain last summer.
The 36-year-old hasn’t always been a regular in the side, due to injury or conserving his minutes.
However, his presence has always been felt, both on and off the pitch.
His reaction to the Blues beating Atletico Madrid in the Champions League demonstrated an undying passion towards the club.
Hopefully, Silva will have plenty more moments to saviour before the campaign concludes.
Chelsea face off against Leicester City in the FA Cup final on Saturday, before they challenge Manchester City for the Champions League crown in 17 days’ time.
Thomas Tuchel may look to Silva for his big game experience and leadership to get his team over the line in either match.
Not to mention in the Blues remaining Premier League fixtures, beginning with a London Derby versus Arsenal this evening.
