Thiago Silva will soon be on the Chelsea training pitch with his new teammates following his move from Paris Saint-Germain.
With his contract expiring in the French capital after eight years at the Ligue 1 side, Frank Lampard made a move to snap up the experienced centre-back on a free transfer.
The head coach often chopped and changed in defence during his first year at the helm and the Brazilian is seen as the player who can help the Blues fix their defensive woes.
Signing a one-year deal at Stamford Bridge last week, the FA Cup finalists have the option of extending the 35-year-old’s contract by a further 12 months if they so wish.
Thiago Silva will arrive shortly from his holiday.
He has been in isolation centre for about two weeks , he’s expected to train with the rest of the team today ahead of Premier League opener
