Thiago Silva Makes transfer decision with announcement imminent after wife drops huge Chelsea hint

Belle Silva, the wife of Chelsea defender Thiago Silva, has dropped a hint that the player will be leaving Stamford Bridge at the end of the season – and the defender added fuel to those rumours this weekend.

Silva is out of contract with Chelsea at the end of the season, and there are currently no signs of talks over a new deal to extend his stay with the club. Silva has been with Chelsea for four years after joining on a free transfer from Paris Saint Germain in the summer of 2020.

The defender played the full 90 minutes of Chelsea’s 1-0 FA Cup semi-final defeat against Manchester City on Saturday afternoon. At full time he was visibly upset and posted of his disappointment on social media after the game.

Before the match, Silva’s wife posted pictures of her and her family getting ready to watch from the Wembley stands on her Instagram story. On one of the posts of her holding a Chelsea scarf with Silva’s name on, she wrote: “It’s the last dance on Wembley.”

That hints that the Silva family are expecting this campaign to be his last at the club. That perhaps also explains the defender’s emotions at the end, with the final chance of winning a third piece of silverware with the club now gone.

Silva was a key part of the squad that lifted the Champions League in 2021. He also won the Club World Cup with Chelsea the following year.

After the game, Silva revealed that a decision has been made over his future, with fans knowing in the ‘coming days’.

“You are going to know in the coming days,” he said, via the Mirror. “I don’t want to say anything now after a defeat. I’m sad about the result, but sooner or later the news will come out. I do have a decision made in my mind, but it’s not the moment to share it.

“It’s not an individual sport, but my four years here were very good. Not that I didn’t believe in myself, but with my age and the intensity of this league, it’s rare to see players in a high level at 39.

“I don’t like to talk about me, but you can see this. In the semi-final I was ready to play the extra-time! I can see I still have some years in me to keep enjoying football.”
