Revealed by Fluminense, Thiago Silva is the dream of the Carioca board for the 2023 season.
Head of the Brazilian national team in the last three World Cups, Thiago Silva is a player identified with Fluminense. A good part of the tricolor fans have dreamed of his return for some time. And the club from Rio should try to make it happen next year. According to information from journalist Victor Lessa, Tricolor is already moving to open conversations with the defender.
At the age of 38, Thiago Silva has a contract with Chelsea until June 2023. Starting next month, the defender will be free to sign a pre-contract. However, despite his advanced age, the defender has still shown a high level compatible with European football. Therefore, it is possible that he will receive proposals to continue playing in big clubs in the Old Continent, which would make it difficult for him to return to Fluminense.
With spells at Fluminense, Thiago Silva became a professional at RS Futebol Clube and debuted in Série A with Juventude in 2004. After difficult spells at Porto, Portugal, and Dinamo Moscow, Russia, where he even contracted tuberculosis, the defender returned to Brazilian football to defend Fluminense.
Featured in 2006, 2007 and 2008, being World Cup champion, the defender was traded to Milan. In Italy, the Brazilian played from 2009 to 2012, when he was traded to PSG. Thiago Silva defended the Paris club from 2012 to 2020. The following season he was signed by Chelsea.
