Silva joined Chelsea from Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer last year.

Convinced by Frank Lampard to move to London, Silva made an immediate impact in the Blues’ back line.

However, deployed at the heart of a three-man defence under Tuchel, Silva went to another level.

And his stunning efforts at the age of 36 helped Chelsea land their second Champions League trophy last weekend.

The Blues have now triggered the automatic one-year extension in Silva’s deal that he penned in August 2020.

Chelsea transfer guru Marina Granovskaia admits everyone at the club is delighted that ‘world-class’ Silva is staying put.

And she hopes the centre-back builds on his 34 Chelsea appearances so the club can land even more silverware next season.

Granovskaia said: “When we brought Thiago Silva in last summer, we knew we were adding a world-class player to the squad.
