Paris Saint-Germain defender Thiago Silva has, according to Telefoot, chosen a move to Chelsea over a return to Serie A.
The Brazilian veteran’s contract with PSG expires this month and he will leave the French capital on a free transfer.
The former Milan centre-back has received an offer from the Viola and has been linked with a return to Milan in recent weeks.
But Chelsea were offered the player last week, a deal the Blues didn’t hesitate to attack, according to the reports in France.
Telefoot claims the Brazil international has chosen a move to London and will sign the deal within this week.
Fiorentina’s dream of bringing in another big name seems to fade.
