Chelsea have completed the signing of former PSG captain Thiago Silva.
Brazil centre-back Thiago Silva has signed for Chelsea on a one-year deal, with the option of another.
The 35-year-old has joined the Blues on a free transfer having left Paris St-Germain after their Champions League final defeat on 23 August.
He will bolster the Blues’ defence, which conceded the most goals (54) in the Premier League top 10 in 2019-20.
“I am so happy to be joining Chelsea. I am delighted to be a part of Frank Lampard’s exciting squad,” Thiago Silva said.
“I’m here to challenge for honours and I look forward to playing at Stamford Bridge very soon.”
Thiago Silva, who has made 88 international appearances, played more than 200 games for PSG during his eight years in the French capital, winning seven consecutive Ligue 1 titles.
He is manager Frank Lampard’s fourth summer signing, following England left-back Ben Chilwell from Leicester and forwards Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner.
