Chelsea star Thiago Silva is said to ready to extend his deal in west London.
The veteran defender, 36, joined the Blues on a free this summer, penning a one-year contract following his PSG exit.
However, Italian outlet TuttoMercatoWeb report Silva is already in talks to sign a one-year extension after hitting the ground running at Stamford Bridge.
Silva has told the club of his desire to stay and discussions could accelerate in the coming days.
The defender is already a good leader in Frank Lampard’s dressing room and has helped shore up Chelsea’s backline, with the club keen to keep hold for another year.

The Brazilian has settled into London life well, scoring his first goal for the club in the 4-1 win over Sheffield United before the international break.

The Chelsea star’s other half shared photos on her Instagram story to 400,000 followers of a Christmas wonderland at their stunning mansion earlier this month.
Belle brought in a company to decorate the family’s massive house, with the staircase decorated with baubles and ribbon, leading to the huge Christmas tree in the living room.
