Chelsea get transfer message over Sancho deal as Luiz announces he wants to stay as talks in progress

David Luiz has admitted that he is in talks with Chelsea about a new contract and hopes to be at the club after the summer window.

Luiz has been an integral part of the set-up this season under Maurizio Sarri and has looked very impressive at times, but there has been constant speculation in the media that he will be leaving the club at the end of the season after failing to agree a new contract with the club.

Sarri was reportedly ready to spend big money in the transfer window and reinvent the side, with the Italian boss looking to acquire the likes of Kalidou Koulibaly, Alessio Romagnoli or even Tody Alderweireld, but those plans have been put on hold.

We are facing a transfer ban will does not allow us to acquire any new players in the coming transfer windows, meaning the clubs hierarchy will now need to get their biggest players signed up to a new deals.

Asked by the Evening Standard if he will still be at Stamford Bridge next season, he replied: ‘I think so.

‘We are talking with the club. Everybody knows I love this club, I feel comfortable here and am happy here. I am doing my job very well so I think a lot is going to happen.

‘I have the best job in the world so I have to be motivated every single day. I love football, if I didn’t love football I would not be playing anymore.”

Meanwhile, Jadon Sancho will remain at Borussia Dortmund next season despite speculation linking him to a number of Europe’s top sides,

Sancho is now considered to be one of the most exciting talents in world football after a stunning season with Borussia Dortmund, in which the Englishman has netted nine goals, with the winger being involved in 22 goals for Dortmund this season.

We have been linked with a possible move for the winger as they seek a long-term solution to Eden Hazard, who is heavily tipped to pack his bags and leave for Real Madrid in a deal worth around £100 million.

His impressive displays have also led to speculation that Sancho could leave Dortmund this summer, but Sporting Director Michael Zorc has dismissed those suggestions, insisting he will remain in Germany.

“Jadon will play for Borussia Dortmund next season and we are definitely planning with him,” Zorc told Sport Bild.

“I am far from putting a price tag on Jadon, but I maintain that his transfer would be hard to beat even for the biggest clubs in the world at the moment.”
