Thiago Silva agrees Fiorentina deal and begins house hunting in Florence. Chelsea are targeting defensive reinforcements to bolster a leaky backline.
Chelsea have been dealt a transfer blow with Thiago Silva agreeing a £70,000-a-week deal at Fiorentina, according to reports in Italy. The Blues were linked with a move for the Paris Saint-Germain defender.
With his contract expiring after the Champions League final on Sunday night, the 35-year-old Brazilian could have provided some much-needed experience to Frank Lampard’s defence.
But according to Corriere dello Sport, Silva is on his way to Serie A side Fiorentina. Silva will leave PSG after Sunday’s final against Bayern Munich in Lisbon.
He is ready to take a huge pay cut after eight years with the Ligue 1 champions.
