Chelsea’s supposed pursuit of Thiago Silva makes sense on a certain level, especially if we look at the veteran center back as a stopgap solution until next summer, which is apparently when we’re truly going to address the position (with a new big signing, presumably).

Chelsea offering anything more than a single-year contract to the PSG captain however makes far less sense, but that is what Fabrizio Romano’s claiming in his latest update given as part of CBS’s build-up to the final.
