Chelsea and PSG agree £40m Luiz deal

Chelsea have agreed a deal with Paris St-Germain, worth in the region of £40m, for the sale of defender David Luiz to the French champions.

Luiz, 27, joined the Blues from Benfica for £21.3m in January 2011.

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

The Brazilian has three years left on the five-year contract he signed at Stamford Bridge in September 2012.

Luiz has been the subject of interest from Barcelona in the last two summers, but French champions PSG – despite recently failing Uefa’s financial fair play (FFP) rules – will break the transfer record for a defender to secure his services.
