Chelsea defender Thiago Silva reaffirms Fluminense ambitions

Chelsea defender Thiago Silva has reaffirmed plans to play for Fluminense before he retires.

Silva has opened up on his desire to one day return to his former club Fluminense, where he made 143 appearances as a young defender.

He told TNT Sports: "I do have this dream of returning to wearing the shirt of Fluminense, everyone knows my desire, it was expressed by [manager] Marcao recently also in an interview.

"But it's something I prefer to leave ahead to see how things are going to happen, right.

"It's a difficult decision to be made, but I'm really thinking with great affection and suddenly have this Libertadores mission again."
