Thiago Silva rejected PSG deal to continue his career in French giants

Paris Saint-Germain made a last-ditch effort to persuade Thiago Silva to sign an elongated contract until his transfer to Chelsea was confirmed, according to his agent.

“He gave up hope [on a new contract offer] because two months earlier, Leonardo told him he didn’t want to prolong it,” Tonietto told L’Equipe

“But last Tuesday, Thiago was called by Leonardo, and he mentioned the prospect of staying another year.”

“Thiago and Chelsea had already reached an agreement, there was no going back. You have to be persuaded when you make a suggestion like that. A sports director who advises a player he doesn’t want him anymore, then he tries to prolong that two months later, how can you handle that?”

Tonietto declares PSG coach Thomas Tuchel was seeking to hang on to the former star of AC Milan, but after Leonardo claimed his time in the French capital was up, there was less hope that he would choose to continue.

“The sports director and the coach have to travel together in a group. That’s not the case,” he said. 

“Tuchel was still trying to keep Thiago. Leonardo was the one who didn’t want to because he is the one with the power.”

“That’s why, even if he hadn’t signed with Chelsea, Thiago couldn’t see how he should have approved the idea from Leonardo, after what he had told him two months earlier. It would be embarrassing,” he added.

“We never talked about money or the duration of the contract. Never. Leonardo just said he wasn’t counting on him anymore. Nothing else.”
