Chelsea will allow best player to leave this summer
The player in question is Thiago Silva.
As per the Telegraph, Chelsea are unlikely to stand in the way of Thiago Silva if the Brazilian informs the club that he wishes to make an emotional return to Fluminense this summer.
Silva only signed a one-year extension to his contract in February, but has been linked with a return to Brazil to finish his career at the club that rescued it after he contracted tuberculosis while on loan at Dynamo Moscow.
Incoming head coach Mauricio Pochettino will be consulted on the future of all of Chelsea’s players, but he has historically not held on to players who want to move.
Silva has been far and away Chelsea’s most consistent player since he joined from PSG on a free transfer.
He was crucial to the Blues picking up their second Champions League crown in 2021 and even in the current campaign when Chelsea have been woeful, the veteran stopper has been largely solid when fit and available to play.
