Chelsea will try to continue their recent strong form when they go to the King Power Stadium to face Leicester City on Saturday.

The West London team has had an exciting start to the 2021/2022 season, currently sitting in first place on the Premier League table.

However, the Blues may now be rocked by rumors that veteran central defender Thiago Silva is considering quitting the club next year.

Since joining Chelsea from Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain in 2020, the 37-year-old Brazil International has been a crucial member of the first-team squad.

The seasoned center defender had an intriguing 2020/2021 season for Chelsea, appearing in 34 games across all competitions and scoring two goals.

Thiago Silva has also had a solid start to the 2021/2022 season, scoring one goal and creating one assist in 12 games across all competitions.

However, Thiago Silva's current deal with Chelsea expires in less than a year, and because he has not signed an extension, he may be willing to leave the club next year.
