Chelsea Agree David Luiz Sale to PSG for World Record Fee

David Luiz is on the verge of completing a world record move to Paris St Germain after Chelsea confirmed that they had agreed a deal for the defender.

Luiz will be moving across the Channel in a £40 million deal that could potentially rise to up to £50 million depending upon performances. These include bonuses for winning the league, Champions League, and so on. Even without those bonuses, Luiz becomes the world’s most expensive defender. He goes past PSG’s own Thiago Silva, who cost the club £36 million in 2012.

Luiz is yet to pass the medical and agree personal terms, but these are expected to be a formality and the deal should be completed before the World Cup.

A statement on Chelsea’s official site read: “The move is now subject to David Luiz agreeing personal terms with PSG and passing a medical.”

Luiz made 143 appearances for Chelsea since 2011 after joining the club for £24 million. He scored 12 – almost all of them being stunners – during this period. He was one of the scorers in Chelsea’s penalty shootout against Bayern Munich in the Champions League final 2012.

A statement on PSG’s site read: “In accordance with the player’s [Luiz] wish to prepare for and play in the World Cup in his home country in the best possible conditions, both clubs and David Luiz wished to reach an agreement as soon as possible.”

In his time at Chelsea, he has won the FA Cup, Champions League, and the Europa League. Last season, though, was a disappointment, as he failed to score even a single goal.

Chelsea are likely to replace Luiz with youngsters Tomas Kalas and Kurt Zouma.

  4. Luiz to PSG for a mouth watering fee is not bad, but who will save us from doom with his thunderous penalties n his team inspirations like the night in Munich.

  5. The same farewell as Mata.

    Nobody understood then, and now again?

    Lets sack Mourinho immediately.
    We already lost Mata and Luis. Are we going to wait for Hazard going too?
