The end of the road has come for both Thiago Silva and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting with PSG. The 2020 UEFA Champions League Final loss to FC Bayern Munich was the final game for the two with the club. The board decided earlier this year that it would not renew their contracts past the team’s Champions League run, thus making them free agents at season’s end.
PSG midfielder Ander Herrera spent just one season with both Silva and Choupo-Moting but still appreciated the short time he had playing alongside them. On his official Twitter account, Herrera posted a photo of him with the two departing talents and also wished both the best on their next destination.

Silva will be remembered as arguably the best defender in the team’s history. The Brazilian was a constant professional in his time with the club and also won 25 trophies. On the other hand, PSG surely appreciates Choupo-Moting for his contributions in his pair of seasons with the club, which included scoring the game-winning goal against Atalanta in the quarterfinal of this season’s Champions League knockout stage.
Silva is likely off to Chelsea while Choupo-Moting has yet to decide on his new club.
