Chelsea have ensured Thiago Silva and Olivier Giroud will remain at Stamford Bridge for another year.

Veteran Brazilian Silva left PSG as a free agent last season and joined Chelsea, but his brilliant performance prompted the club to extend his contract until 2022.

The club also extended the 34-year-old Giroud's contract until 2022. In recent days, rumors have been circulating that the French striker is close to joining Milan.

Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia told the

club website

 :

"When we brought Thiago Silva in last summer, we knew we were adding a world-class player to the squad. Thiago has duly shown everyone at Chelsea his immense quality throughout this season, and he has had a huge influence on and off the pitch for us

.

"We said when he signed that we hoped Thiago would add new trophies to his impressive list of honours, and he has done just that with our success in the Champions League this weekend. We now hope that he carries on in exactly the same fashion in the coming year."

Of Giroud, Granovskaia said:  "Olivier has been such a crucial part of so many big moments for this club, from his contribution to our FA Cup victory in 2018 to scoring 11 goals on the way to winning the Europa League in 2019.

"He has continued to score significant goals, and we will never forget his effort against Atletico Madrid on the way to winning the Champions League this season.

"With so much to still to play for, there was only one decision we could make when we exercised the option to extend his contract back in April."
