The Englishman joins in a deal which will reportedly cost the Blues around the £50m. Chilwell has been Frank Lampard’s fuse choice to fill the left-back, however, the deal was getting stretched due to Leicester City’s initial price tag of £80m. However, Ben Chilwell’s will to join the North London giants and the financial crisis caused due to the COVID-19 meant that foxes were forced to bring down their price tag which helped the London giants to get their target.
Thiago Silva’s signing for Chelsea hasn’t been seen as the blockbuster deals that the Blues have been able to pull off in terms of the Chilwells and Werners. However, if former Brazrlian international and legend Rivaldo is believed SIlav could prove to be a key signing.
Rivaldo was quoted saying, “At 35, Thiago Silva will sign for two seasons with Chelsea and I’m confident that he will do a great job there, as he is a great centre-back with excellent positioning and vast experience of world football,” he told Betfair.
“I think he still comes with plenty to offer. I’d back him to produce a good football in the Premier League and should be a commanding voice in Frank Lampard’s otherwise young squad. Nowadays, many players extend their careers until their late-thirties and Silva is a good example of that, as I was in my time.”
If reports are to be believed than Kai Havertz is closing in on a switch to the Premier League with Chelsea close to agreeing on a fee with his parent club Bundesliga outfit Bayern Leverkusen. And if reports are to be believed than Frank Lampard’s men can seal upto three deals this week including that of Havertz, Malang Sarr and Thiago Silva.
