Reports this week have suggested that Silva is considering a return to Fluminense, the Brazilian club where he began his youth career as a a 14-year-old, and and potentially could make the move this summer.
Fluminense president Mario Bittencourt has spoken of the club’s desire to bring Silva back to Brazil, despite the centre-back extending his Chelsea contract earlier this year through to the summer of 2024.
Ahead of the 2-2 draw with Nottingham Forest at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea’s supporters made their opinions clear as two huge Silva banners were unfurled, with the 38-year-old a fan favourite ever since he arrived in west London in 2020.
They will be comforted then by a social media put out by Belle Silva after the match, in which she spoke of how happy the family were in London and seemingly put to bed any talk that a transfer could happen this summer.
“Guys, I want to thank everyone who came to me for a hug, for a song - ‘Oh Thiago Silva’,” she said.
“Thanks so much. We, my family, my husband, my children and me, we are very, very happy here in London, in Chelsea.
“So my family and I are Blue, are Chelsea and we stay here. Go Blues!”
