The 35-year-old, who has made 89 appearances for Brazil, will bring a mountain of experience to Frank Lampard's side as they prepare to challenge for the Premier League title in 2020/21.
"I am so happy to be joining Chelsea. I am delighted to be a part of Frank Lampard's exciting squad," Silva said.
"I'm here to challenge for honours and I look forward to playing at Stamford Bridge very soon."
It has been a window to remember for Chelsea fans. The Blues have already agreed a sensational deal to sign Timo Werner in a transfer worth almost €60 million.
Werner, who will reportedly pocket £180,000-a-week at Stamford Bridge after the club met his release clause, was in scintillating form for Leipzig last season, scoring 25 goals in 29 Bundesliga games.
The impressive addition of Dutch winger Hakim Ziyech from Ajax in a £33 million deal has also turned heads, while left-back Ben Chilwell was snapped up from Leicester for a reported £50 million earlier this week.
Absolutely buzzing to sign for @ChelseaFC. Really exciting time for the club, with such a good squad! Can't wait to meet all of the lads and everyone around the building. Special thank you to the manager for the faith he has shown in me. A dream come true. Come on you blues :blue_heart: pic.twitter.com/xpfIklsgzn- Ben Chilwell (@BenChilwell) August 26, 2020
Malang Sarr, who left Nice this summer following the expiry of his contract, is also another superb piece of business, although he is set to spend the 2020/21 season out on loan to gain valuable first-team experience.
In addition to all of the above, Chelsea are in pole position to bring Kai Havertz to the club from Bayern Leverkusen after the German side accepted a €100 million bid from the Premier League outfit on Monday.
The playmaker already agreed personal terms last month.
Confirmed. Chelsea and Bayer Leverkusen to sign the agreement for Kai Havertz for €100M add ons included (80-10-10). Five years contract - Lampard already spoke with Kai. Paperworks time between the two clubs to complete every detail. Here we go soon :large_blue_circle::checkered_flag: #CFC #Havertz https://t.co/2uW7jTywhl- Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) August 24, 2020
Those six additions will certainly strengthen what is already a solid side that secured Champions League football last season, but how will Chelsea line-up when they travel to the Amex to face Brighton on September 14th?
All we know is, Frank Lampard is going to have a selection headache come the opening day of the campaign.
There will be serious competition for places in the coming months.
Will Chelsea challenge for the Premier League title after such an impressive transfer window this summer?
Let us know in the comments.
