Defender Thiago Silva has spoken ahead of a do or die clash between his side Paris Saint-Germain and German machine Bayern Munich.
Thiago is running out of contract at PSG and reports are rife that he has been offered by his agent to Londoners Chelsea.
With the blues now considering him as an option to help boost their leaking defence, Thiago now wants some days for him to decide about his future.
He has revealed that he is now focusing on the UEFA Champions League final after which he will make his future clear.
Apart from Chelsea a number of Serie A clubs like Fiorentina are also interested in the experienced center back.
‘Destiny is in our hands,’ said the 35-year-old, speaking ahead of tomorrow’s showdown against Bayern.
‘The club turns 50 and it’s the last year of my deal,’ he told the club’s website. “I gave everything I could.
“If I can continue to play with the club, we will discuss it and make the best decision”.
Chelsea qualified for next season’s Champions League after securing a top four finish, despite their defensive issues. The Blues conceded 54 Premier League goals last term, more than any other side that finished in the top 10.
Frank Lampard is said to have lost patience with error-prone goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga and has failed to settle on an established central defensive pairing.
Kurt Zouma and Antonio Rudiger started the FA Cup final against Arsenal last month, but Fikayo Tomori and Andreas Christensen have featured regularly under the former club captain, while Cesar Azpilicueta has filled in at centre-half on the occasions Lampard has reverted to a 3-4-4 formation.
Lampard is looking to add steel and a commanding presence to his rearguard and is known to be an admirer of West Ham’s Declan Rice who is keen on returning to Stamford Bridge having been released as a teenager.
The Hammers value their prize asset at around £60million which could lead Chelsea to look elsewhere. Birighton’s Lewis Dunk has emerged as a possible target, while Burnley’s England international James Tarkowski is also being monitored.
