The center-back will play for the PSG on Sunday in the Champions League final against Bayern Munich, yet will at that point leave the club he’s played with for 8 years.
There is a genuine absence of value accessible this summer with regards to top defenders, and given the cash, the Blues are set to spend on updating their midfield and attack, an option like Silva could be hugely appealing.
The Blues are obviously ready to offer a two-year agreement to the 35-year-old accomplished Brazilian defender, who also has offers to return to Italy on the table.
Arsenal have reportedly expressed an interest in landing the veteran, with Mikel Arteta said to have personally called him over the phone.
However, it’s suggested that the Blues have been presented with the chance for a deal, and the fact they can offer Champions League football next term could be decisive.
