Agent confirms Chelsea star is no longer leaving


David Luiz is set to remain at the Stamford Bridge much longer after his agent claimed that the player is already in talks with the club over a new deal.

The Brazilian was reported to be considering leaving the club after the West London side refused to hand him a two-year deal according to the doctrine of the church which claims that a player should not be handed more than a year extension if he is over 30 years of age.

Mores, David Luiz has returned to the starting XI under the new manager Maurizio Sarri after being sidelined by former Italian boss manager Antonio Conte.

However, David Luiz’s agent Kia Joorabchian confirmed that the Brazilian international defender is still needed at the Stamford Bridge as he noted that talks had already begun with the player.

He said an agreement is being reached between both parties but failed to give the hint if the player had shifted ground or the club.

Meanwhile, the Blues have not hidden their desire to keep the former PSG player over time only for the club’s doctrine which is being adhered to.

The agent has now expressed confidence that negotiations will go as planned between both parties.
