David Luiz set for PSG move

By on May 23, 2014

Highly-rated Chelsea star David Luiz is set to move to Ligue 1 with champions Paris St. Germain.


According to the Daily Mail, Luiz will move to PSG for a fee of around £50m. PSG representatives are now in Brazil to complete his medical before the World Cup begins. Following Chelsea’s decision to keep John Terry for another season, the Blues deemed Luiz as surplus to requirements. Luiz would be the most expensive defender ever.

Chelsea will now rebuild their squad for next season, with Atletico star Diego Costa on top of their wishlist. Luiz’ departure follows quickly after Juan Mata’s move to Manchester United in the January transfer window with the Blues not shy to make a move despite a player’s popularity.
