David Luiz Confirms Chelsea Exit in an Emotional Message

David Luiz has confirmed his Chelsea exit in an emotional message, as he prepares to join Paris St Germain in a £48 million deal.

His statement read: “Thanks Chelsea for the three and half years of great partnership. I’ve made good friends, won many titles and those memories will last with me forever. I’d like to thank my teammates, all staff and supporters (my geezers). I’m leaving with great sadness but at the same time excited for the new challenge that lies ahead.”

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: “Chelsea Football Club and Paris Saint-Germain have agreed terms for the transfer of David Luiz to the French club. The move is now subject to David Luiz agreeing personal terms with PSG and passing a medical.”

Chelsea are expected to invest much of this cash back into the squad. Diego Costa is one of the first names expected to arrive in the summer at £32 million.
