OFFICIAL: Ex-PSG captain Thiago Silva joins Chelsea as a free agent
During his eight years in the French capital, the Brazil international centre-back won seven Ligue 1 titles among the huge haul of 25 trophies he has collected with Les Rouge et Bleu.
Though he turns 36 in September, Thiago Silva was still in prime form in 2019-20, topping the division’s ‘passes completed’ chart with 95.5% of his attempts reaching their target.
With 204 league games, including 200 starts for PSG, Thiago Silva last season went past former teammate Blaise Matuidi to move level with Dominique Rocheteau in 14th on the club’s all-time appearance makers chart.
With 154 wins in those 204 league games, PSG have won 73.5% of their matches with Thiago Silva in the side compared to 66.3% without him.
