Brazilian international central defender David Luiz seems to have given up on his bid to convince his English Premier League outfit Chelsea into handing him a two-year deal.

The West London side have a transfer policy which refuses them from handing for than a year extension deal to players who are over 30 but the Brazilian international wants the policy to be waved in his case and it was refuted by the club management.

Reports claim that the Blues were ready to show him the exit door should he refuse to put to paper a year contract extension and has now bowed to the threat.

Brazilian sources claim that David Luiz is now ready for talks with the West London side so as to pen a year contract extension.

However, David Luiz is a major part of the Chelsea team and has proven over the years that he can be relied upon in big games, ad advantage he has got over other defenders.

But should the Blues decide to let him go, David Luiz has got a number of targets from big European sides including the Chinese top flight league, waiting to land his signature either in this winter window or in the coming summer window.
