Thiago Silva signs with Chelsea

Finally, that dal is closed. Thiago Silva signed with Chelsea on a 1+1 years deal.

The 35 year old central defender came to Chelsea for free, after just playing the Champions League final with PSG. Apparently he really wanted to play in Premier League, because his salary dropped a lot to around £100,000 per week.

Looking ahead to his new challenge, Thiago Silva said: ‘I am so happy to be joining Chelsea. I am delighted to be a part of Frank Lampard’s exciting squad for next season and I’m here to challenge for honours. See you soon Chelsea fans, I look forward to playing at Stamford Bridge very soon.’

Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia said: ‘We are delighted to be able to add a player of Thiago Silva’s proven world-class credentials to our squad.

‘Having performed at the highest level for many years, we have no doubt his experience and quality will complement the many exciting talents we already have here.

‘Thiago will be an excellent fit and we hope he can add some new trophies to his impressive list of honours.’
