THIAGO SILVA is reportedly set to extend his Chelsea contract for another year.
And the Blues are also set to open talks with midfield stars N’Golo Kante and Jorginho.
Fabrizio Romano claims Thomas Tuchel is eager for Silva to agree fresh terms with the Blues after a stellar debut season in England.
Silva, 36, joined on a free transfer from Paris Saint-Germain last summer on a one-year deal.
He has been a revelation in 29 appearances under both Tuchel and predecessor Frank Lampard, solidifying Chelsea’s defence while also providing a leadership boost behind the scenes.
And with his contract expiring in June, both Silva and Chelsea are apparently keen to trigger a clause which will extend it until June 2022.
Meanwhile, Kante and Jorginho will also soon talk with Blues bosses over their own new deals.
The pair have been Chelsea’s midfield bedrock, and along with Mateo Kovacic have provided a solid base for the Blues’ forwards to thrive.
It’s reckoned Andreas Christensen and Antonio Rudiger will also be handed new contracts soon after also impressing.
And Tuchel himself is set for a bumper pay rise this summer after leading Chelsea to the Champions League and FA Cup finals.
Silva, who worked with Tuchel at PSG, is eager to end the season on a high and win both trophies.
He said: “It’s exhausting that every three days you have to perform great and play to such a high standard.”
“I always strive to win, I work hard to win.
“Things have turned out where we’ve come to the end of the season and we’re fighting for other trophies instead of the title.”
