Previous Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain manager

Paul Clement

has uncovered that

Frank Lampard

messaged him to get some information about

Thiago Silva

before Chelsea moved to hire the center-back. 

The 36-year-old Brazilian has had a groundbreaking effect at Stamford Bridge this season with supremacy to assist the club with last season's defense line problems. 

With the most clean-sheets in the

Premier League

this season, Chelsea are currently contending among the top teams fighting for the trophy.

Having worked at PSG just as at


, Real Madrid, and Bayern Munich with Ancelotti, Clement was all around set to offer his recommendation to Lampard with only positive comments about the defender. 

"I had a brief text exchange with Frank about him and I shared my opinion and I am glad he took him and that it has worked out up until this point," Clement told Goal.

"It was definitely a different time when I worked with him at PSG. He was 27 and he was a big signing at the time. For PSG to sign a major player at an amazing age from Milan at that time was a big coup. He was at the peak of his powers.

"PSG got the best out of him for sure over many seasons. He has an incredible trophy tally, I think it was over 30 trophies with leagues, cups and close to the Champions League but he didn’t quite get there.

"He is a really good player with the ball at his feet. He was quick and athletic without being the biggest but he is tough and aggressive. He is a leader and a winner. Since he has gone to Chelsea, at 36 years old, to go in at that level of the competition, he has done extremely well."
