Besides his immense contribution to the Brazilian national team, Thiago Silva displayed some of the greatest defending performances for the French side PSG. However, he recently took his transfer to English Premier League side Chelsea. He mainly has a 12-months contract with the blues with an option for another year of the contract extension.
Chelsea will soon reveal him on the ground right before his 36th birthday in a match against Barnsley at Carabao Cup. The English side spent almost $280 million this season to rearrange the team. However, Edouard Mendy is also having his medical this week as he also opted for his transfer from Rennes to the English Premier League side.
Thiago Silva believes he could stay for more than a season at the Premier League side Chelsea
While talking about Chelsea, Thiago Silva recently said, “I think when you get to a certain age, the tendency is that you sign this type of contract and at times there are maybe doubts and, like with me and the expectations of Chelsea, that is to be expected.” He said, “But I have no doubt that I will give everything, do my best and will contribute. I am prepared to work really hard in everything I do.”
The Brazilian star said, “I love football; I love preparation. It’s not a case of preparing on Friday for Saturday; my type of preparation goes way back.” He then further added, “I’m totally relaxed about the contract and whether Chelsea will want to renew it or not, I don’t know, if I haven’t met expectations or contributed then we’ll sit down and talk about that. But I’m not worried at all.”

He said, “I will do my best possible and really contribute to this team, this new project. I’ve accepted this new challenge; it’s going to be really good for me. Everyone knows that my ambition is to pay in the World Cup in two years’ time when I’ll be 38. That’s a great responsibility.” The star then added, “In relation to not speaking English, it’s going to be difficult, it always is with a new language, but you are speaking to someone who speaks Italian, French and Spanish and Portuguese.”
He said, “The tendency when you learn some languages, others come easier. I am going to learn English as quickly as possible. It’s quite uncomfortable for me, being here, giving this interview with someone else interpreting for me so I would like to give interviews in English soon. I’m studying Monday to Friday to speak English.”
