Thiago Silva to leave Chelsea, return to former club. Veteran defender Thiago Silva could be on his way back to his former club Fluminense.
The Brazilian side is reportedly planning to bring back the former Paris Saint-Germain captain to their squad for the 2024 season.
Silva joined Chelsea from PSG on a free transfer in the summer of 2020 and has helped the Blues lift three trophies so far, including the Champions League.
The 38-year-old Silva recently signed a new one-year contract at Stamford Bridge, extending his stay in London through to the summer of 2024.
Chilean journalist Jose Tomas Fernandez Pumarino is now reporting that the Brazilian side is hoping to lure the veteran defender back to his home country when his contract with Chelsea ends next year.
He tweeted: “Thiago Silva, with a contract with Chelsea until the end of next season, is one of Fluminense’s goals for the 2024 season and they are already working on the formula to achieve said signing in January or July.”
