As seven depart the club this summer, Chelsea extended three contracts.
Manager Thomas Tuchel was handed a new deal until 2024, while Thiago Silva’s initial one-year deal was extended by a further year.
Olivier Giroud’s contract in west London was also unilaterally triggered by an extra year by the club.
What Thomas Tuchel said on extending his deal
“I cannot imagine a better occasion for a contract renewal. I am grateful for the experience and very happy to stay part of the Chelsea family.
“There is far more to come and we are looking forward to our next steps with ambition and much anticipation.”
Tuchel will have plenty more decisions to make this summer as many loanees return. It will be the first time he will be able to sit down and assess his whole squad ahead of his first full season in charge of Chelsea.
