SILVA SET FOR MEDICAL TOMORROW

Thiago Silva is due to undergo a Chelsea medical on Thursday – despite last-ditch efforts by Paris Saint-Germain to offer him a new deal.

The finishing touches to an offer have been agreed between Chelsea and the 35-year old Brazilian in the past 48 hours.

PSG manager Thomas Tuchel remains a huge advocate of Silva – and has continued this week to try to keep the former AC Milan defender in Ligue 1 for a ninth season.

However Silva’s fellow Brazilian, PSG’s sporting director Leonardo, does not share Tuchel’s plan and wants Silva to leave.

It was gathered that relations between Silva and Leonardo had deteriorated, prompting Silva to want a fresh challenge at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League

Chelsea have been keen to strengthen having been banned from signing players last summer. The London club could also complete deals for Leicester left-back Ben Chilwell and Bayer Leverkusen forward Kai Havertz before the start of the new season.

Silva won seven Ligue 1 titles during his time in France, but leaves the club having failed to achieve the European success desired most in Paris.
