'Everyone knows my desire': Thiago Silva shares his dreams about his last adventure in football

  • The 36-year-old is settled in Europe and is quite happy at Chelsea.
  • Still, he's already discussed a return to Brazil with his family.
  • He still dreams of returning to his boyhood club Fluminense and to pla for them in Copa Libertadores.

“If I told you that I don’t think about it, I’d be lying to you,” Thiago Silva told TNT Sports when asked about a possible return to Brazil after his time at Chelsea ends.

“It’s something that I think about, I already talked a few times with my wife. When you have a long career in Europe, your children grow up in Europe, this decision is difficult.

“Maybe you leave your family, your children studying in Europe and go to Brazil anyway. If I’m not mistaken, Julio Cesar did this recently at Flamengo before ending his career.

“I do have this dream of returning to wear the shirt of Fluminense, everyone knows my desire. But it’s something I prefer to leave in the future to see how things are going to happen.

“It’s a difficult decision to be made, but I’m really thinking with great affection and suddenly I have this Libertadores mission again.”

Thiago Silva's contract with Chelsea ends this summer, but the Blues have a one-year extension option. Given the role the 36-year-old has played for the club and the Thomas Tuchel link, an extension is more likely than not at this point.
