THIAGO SILVA has liked an Instagram post hinting at Romelu Lukaku’s move to Chelsea.
And it has sent Blues fans online into overdrive.
A fan account called Chelsea Pulse posted a series of images comparing Frank Lampard’s responses to questions about potentially signing Kai Havertz last summer, with Thomas Tuchel’s answer about Lukaku this.
Lampard had smiled and said: “I’m not talking about Kai Havertz.”
While Tuchel replied to a question about Lukaku, also with a grin: “I will not talk about players who don’t play in my squad.”
Chelsea Pulse captioned their post: “Same vibes.”
And it was promptly liked by the Blues’ veteran defender Thiago Silva on Instagram.
The Brazilian’s social media activity hasn’t gone unnoticed by Chelsea fans.
One wrote: “Thiago Silva just confirmed Lukaku in my book.”
Another added: “Thiago Silva confirms it. Welcome to Chelsea.”
If Lukaku is to join Chelsea, he will leave behind an internal mess at Inter.
