Thiago Silva wouldn't guarantee an end to Chelsea's defensive issues

Thiago Silva wouldn't guarantee an end to Chelsea's defensive issues

The Guardian report that the Blues have held talks with the Brazilian's representatives and a decision on his future will be made following the Champions League final.
