The news is that Thiago Silva wants to return to Brazil.
Silva is a veteran defender for Chelsea. It would not be strange to retire tomorrow, but Silva is still continuing his career in Europe’s top leagues even in his late 30s. Besides, Silva is not far behind in terms of his skills, even when compared to the other defenders on the team. Rather, when Silva falls out of the defensive line, it feels like Chelsea’s defense is shaken. Due to Silva’s strong performance, Chelsea signed a one-year contract with Silva earlier this year, but news broke that Silva wants to return to his native Brazil.

Silva’s departure is likely to be a blow to Chelsea. Even if Silva is missing, Chelsea has several center back resources such as Wesley Popana, Kalidou Koulibaly and Benoit Badiacil, but Silva’s role within Chelsea is quite large. Besides reading the game on the pitch and leading the defense, Silva is a player who can act as a leader in the locker room. He is also a presence that can help young players develop their skills.
With Chelsea rapidly increasing the size of their squad in a short period of time, the atmosphere in the squad is shaking, and Silva’s departure could be a bigger blow than Chelsea expected.
