Thiago Silva has stated that he has no plans to reveal his emotions about his future at Chelsea.
The defender arrived at Stamford Bridge in 2020 with the aim of playing one or two seasons before returning to his birthplace.
Despite his age, the Brazil international remains one of the first names on the squad sheet, having played 125 times for the Blues in all competitions.
During his first season with the club, he won the Champions League, but the change in ownership has destabilized Chelsea and left them as a mid-table side, at least for the time being.
Nonetheless, Silva has played every minute of Chelsea’s Premier League matches under new head coach Mauricio Pochettino in 2023-24.
Despite the addition of new players, the integration of Levi Colwill, and Pochettino’s preference for a back four over a back three.
Silva’s previous contract was signed in February, when Graham Potter was still in charge, and it is unknown whether he would be given new terms.
In an interview with Esporte Espetacular, Silva tried to avoid discussing his future plans or whether he expected to be offered a new contract.
“Isn’t this a long-standing relationship?” he asked. But I’d rather not say anything right now because it’s been problematic in the past.
“I now have a family, I have children.” So we must consider this as well. However, it is about determining where things might bring us enjoyment in order to complete this beautiful and victorious career that I believe I have had.”
Silva was thought to have planned to conclude his career at Brazilian club Fluminense, whom he played in the youth ranks and represented between 2007 and 2009.
Fluminense are now eighth in the Brazilian top flight and are vying for Copa Libertadores football next season.
If he does not sign a new contract with Chelsea by the end of the year, Silva will be able to hold talks with international clubs.
