Mauricio Pochettino has insisted that it’s not his place to decide which player stays or moves away from Stamford Bridge, amid concerns regarding the future of Thiago Silva at Chelsea.

Silva’s current contract with the Blues will rub out at the end of the ongoing campaign.

The Brazilian has been with the West Londoners since 2020, but it is increasingly looking likely that he’ll be allowed to leave this summer.

“At the moment, we are not talking with players,” Pochettino told reporters when pushed about the 39-year-old’s future. “I don’t believe the club is talking.

“In my opinion, it’s a moment now to work together to try and perform and get the results we want.

“That will be between the player and the club to decide what is the best for both sides and the future. At the moment, I don’t believe [so].”
