CONFIRMED: David Luiz rejoins Chelsea from Paris Saint-Germain

1 Sep

David Luiz has completed a sensational return to Chelsea.


The Brazilian defender has rejoined the Blues from Paris Saint-Germain for fee of  around £32million.

Antonio Conte has been desperate to land a centre-back all summer and made a late move for Luiz after missing out on a number of other targets.

The 29-year-old has signed a four-year contract with the Premier League club.

Luiz made 143 appearances in his first spell at Chelsea after arrving from Benfica in 2011 in a £21m deal.

He told the club’s website: “I’m delighted to return to Chelsea.

“We had a fantastic story during my first time at the club and I want to help the team and Antonio Conte achieve a lot of success.

“I always had a wonderful relationship with the fans and I am looking forward to wearing the blue shirt at Stamford Bridge once again.”

He was a popular figure at the club and was part of the team which won the Champions League in 2012.

Luiz also won the FA Cup and Europa League in three years at Stamford Bridge before being sold to PSG in 2014 for £50m, which was a world record fee for a defender.
