The Brazil international expressed his delight after signing a new deal. While speaking to Chelsea’s official website, he said: “I am honestly so happy to continue my career with the Blues. When I signed my first contract here, it was to just do one year. Now it is already the fourth! I could not have imagined that, but really it is a very special moment for me to sign and stay at Chelsea.”
Apart from that, Chelsea are also working on extending the contracts of N’Golo Kante and Mason Mount. Kante’s current deal is set to expire at the end of the current season, whereas, Mount has a deal until 2024.
According to journalist Graeme Bailey, Kalidou Koulibaly is set to leave Chelsea at the end of the summer transfer window. The Senegalese international has struggled since arriving at Stamford Bridge for £34 million from Napoli last summer.
He has played 14 Premier League games this season, scoring two goals. Kalidou Koulibaly has fallen down the pecking order in recent games as Graham Potter prefers January signing Benoit Badiashile in his starting line-up.
The 31-year-old defender could leave ahead of the 2023-24 season. As per Simon Phillips, Chelsea will entertain bids for him next summer.
