Thiago Silva speaks out on his future amid Chelsea move reports

Paris Saint-Germain skipper Thiago Silva believes Saturday’s Champions League final against Bayern may not mean his final match for the club.

The Brazilian has spent the last eight years in France after his move from AC Milan and could win the biggest prize in European club football.

His contract is due to expire this month and he has been linked with a return to Italy, while reports this week claimed he had been offered to Chelsea.

‘Destiny is in our hands,’ said the 35-year-old defender, speaking ahead of the final against Bayern Munich.

‘The club turns 50 and it’s the last year of my deal,’ he told the club’s website. “I gave everything I could.

‘If I can continue to play with the club, we will discuss it and make the best decision.’

Chelsea qualified for next campaign’s Champions League after securing a top four finish in the Premier League, despite their defensive problems.

Frank Lampard’s side conceded 54 goals in the league last season, more than any other team that finished in the top 10.

Chelsea boss Lampard is believed to have lost patience with Kepa and has also failed to settle on an established central back pairing.

Zouma and Rudiger started the FA Cup final against Arsenal last month, but Fikayo Tomori and Christensen have played regularly under Lampard, while Azpilicueta had to fill in at centre-half on a number of occasions.
