Chelsea make shock approach to sign former international captain

Thiago SilvaChelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern this afternoon sinking a few pints to escape the January blues and prepare for tomorrow’s crunch tie with Arsenal are discussing shock reports this morning.

TuttoMercatoWeb states that Chelsea have approached Paris Saint-Germain about the possibility of signing defensive star Thiago Silva this summer, in a deal that would be a sensational coup.

The Blues have struggled this season and sit just four points above the relegation zone heading into tomorrow’s match, with major changes needed at the end of the season when Roman Abramovich appoints the next permanent manager.

Defence has been one of the issues for Chelsea this season and the signing of former Brazil captain Silva would go a long way to fixing those issues, though it’s unlikely PSG will want to part ways with a player who is integral to their plans.

However, with the defender now over the age of 30 and young starlet Marquinhos getting frustrated, the French giants may accept a departure of their iconic central-defender.

Our landlord can’t quite get his head around this rumour though, as he feels the Blues will have to pay an astronomical price and that another ageing defender is not what they need.
