Chelsea are planning a double contract extension for after the Champions League final, according to Fabrizio Romano.

He says that the Blues will be signing Thiago Silvaโ€™s extra year of contract, which was pretty predictable given how well heโ€™s played, how well the team has done, and how much Thomas Tuchel likes him.

Tuchel is the other man mentioned, with an extension on his short initial deal now expected to be agreed shortly after the final tonight.

Did you really think it would be any different? These two will be important today’s night, and probably long beyond that. The sooner we have them signed up, the better.
