Romano: “Thiago Silva will stay at Chelsea” plus Kante and Jorginho set for talks

Some great news circulating through on Wednesday morning after a report over night from transfer expert Fabrizio Romano.

He has confirmed that Chelsea defender Thiago Silva WILL stay at the club this summer and agree a new contract extension.

Thomas Tuchel has named PSG centre back Marquinhos as a summer target, read the full story here.

There are just the last details to be discussed now and then his contract extension clause until June 2022 will be triggered by Chelsea in the next few weeks.

That alone is fantastic news, but there was more…

He also confirms that Chelsea will start new contract negotiations with midfielders N’Golo Kante and Jorginho this summer, but there is no rush on either of them.

All three have fully deserved a reward of a new extension after their performances over the last few months since Thomas Tuchel took charge.

Silva has been excellent all season and is probably a candidate for many as player of the season. It will be good to soon get the confirmation on his extension.
