The Brazilian is fluent in three languages but he doesn't speak English that well.
Thiago Silva's wife Isabelle believes that the only challenge the centre-back will face after moving to England might be a language barrier.
"There was even a joke when we went to talk to Chelsea," Belle told UOL. "We were saying that it’ll be difficult for only one reason... Then my oldest said: 'For my father, right, mom? Because he doesn’t speak any English'. We had a laugh."
However, that will hardly be an issue for a long time. Thiago and Belle are no strangers to learning languages as both are fluent in Portuguese, Italian and French. Besides, their sons, Isago and Iago, are literate in English, speak French and naturally learned Portuguese at home.
