Agent opens up and officially confirms Chelsea talks to seal deal for Brazilian star Luiz
Chelsea are now in talks to hand Brazilian defender David Luiz a new contract to stay with the club, his agent has revealed.
Luiz has become an integral part of the side this season after a terrible time of it under former boss Antonio Conte, show seemingly lost faith on the Brazilian last season after a number of poor performances.
But despite his start under Sarri, there has been some speculation that he could depart at the end of the season for nothing with his contract expiring, and with the club seeking to add a defender or two to the squad, reports have claimed there may not be a place for Luiz in the side.
However, his agent Kia Joorabchian has now revealed that we are in talks to hand Luiz a deal deal when his current contract expires in the summer.
He told The Sun: “Contrary to some reports we are in a very amicable situation with Chelsea.
“We are trying to work out a deal for David Luiz because he wants to stay, the manager wants him to stay and so does the club. I’m sure something will be worked out.”
Recently team-mate Willian lauded the quality of his compatriot Luiz and claimed Sarri has spoken of his desire to keep hold of the Brazilian defender.
“We have to see if the club will want him,” Willian said on the Sky Sports website.
“I think they want (him). For me, I want him to stay.
“David has a lot of quality to do these kind of passes.”[the_ad id=”164″]
Here is what we think.
Sarri has his eyes set on a number of players, namely Kalidou Kouliably, Elsaid Hysay and Mtthijs De Ligt, so there may be no room in the starting eleven for the Brazilian next season and onwards.
But although he wont get a long-term deal, we will surely hand the Brazilian a deal to stay for at least another season.
