Chelsea are battling two Italian clubs for PSG defender Thiago Silva.

As the Brazilian’s contract stand-off with management continues, rival clubs are circling PSG ahead of the January market.

Le 10 Sport says Chelsea face competition from Thiago Silva‘s former club AC Milan and Juventus, where GM Beppe Marotta has admitted their interest.

The player’s agent, Paulo Tonietto, stated: “Chelsea are a big club.

“We’re not negotiating a new contract, let’s see what happens before December.”
