English Premier League club Chelsea have signed veteran Brazilian defender Thiago Silva on a year-long contract with option to extend for another season.

Brazilian central defender’s time as a Paris Saint-German (PSG) came to an end at the Champions League final at the weekend.

His signing follows the addition on Wednesday of Ben Chilwell to the squad and continues the long tradition of top Brazilian players gracing the pitch for Chelsea. Malang Sarr also joined this week and will be on loan in 2020/21.

Looking ahead to his new challenge, Thiago Silva said: ‘I am so happy to be joining Chelsea. I am delighted to be a part of Frank Lampard’s exciting squad for next season and I’m here to challenge for honours. See you soon Chelsea fans, I look forward to playing at Stamford Bridge very soon.’

Despite missing out on a Champions League winner’s medal in his last game, Thiago Silva leaves PSG as a proven winner, having been a key member of the side that amassed an incredible 23 trophies during his eight years there.

That includes last season’s clean sweep of domestic silverware and claiming the Ligue 1 title in all but one of his campaigns in the French capital.

No player has won Ligue 1 more times than Thiago Silva’s seven, with his triumph last season matching an individual record which has stood since the 1960s.

He was also named in the Ligue 1 Team of the Year seven times and the UEFA Team of the Year twice while at the Parc des Princes.
