Chelsea are buying into the possibility of extending Thiago Silva contract as also tie him down to a coaching role after he retires from active football.
The Brazilian footballer has been extraordinary since his move to Stamford Bridge where he has been filled with praises.
Chelsea have had a decent run of winning streak and clean sheet thanks to their solid defense and new goalkeeper Edouard Mendy who joined from Rennes.
That last game against the Ligue One team ended in a 2-1 victory which saw Olivier Giroud scored the last goal with few minutes left.
It has now been reported that the Blues hopes to extend Thiago Silva contract which will expire end of the season after joining as a free agent.
A new deal is in place which will also include an additional coaching role after he retires from playing active football even if he leaves.
Good thanks to his leadership skills which have gelled the defensive problems faced last season and with the new goalkeeper in place.
The deal is although yet to be made official as they hope the Brazil decides to extend and agree to the coaching role deal in place.
Chelsea next game will be up against Tottenham in the English Premier League on Sunday which will be a tough clash.
