Chelsea star Thiago Silva reveals he asked Paulo Dybala to join the Blues when he bumped into him at the British Grand Prix.
Silva, 38, stopped for a chat in the paddock and revealed Dybala responded to his transfer plea.
The defender told Sky Sports: “I saw Paulo Dybala here, they talk about him at Chelsea. I hope he arrives.
“I’ve talked with him and asked him if he is coming, he answered me, but I can’t say what he told me.”
Reports in Italy this week claimed Chelsea were considering a move for Dybala, who scored 18 goals in his debut season at Roma after joining last summer.
Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino is reportedly a fan of Dybala who has a £10million release clause in his Roma contract.
