David Luiz returns to Chelsea

Chelsea have confirmed the re-signing of defender David Luiz on a three-year deal.

The Brazilian spent three years at Stamford Bridge before agreeing a record £50m switch to Paris Saint-Germain, and now re-joins up with the west Londoners in a deal thought to be worth around £32m.

Speaking to the official club’s website, the defender said: “I’m delighted to return to Chelsea. We had a fantastic story during my first time at the club and I want to help the team and Antonio Conte achieve a lot of success.

“I always had a wonderful relationship with the fans and I am looking forward to wearing the blue shirt at Stamford Bridge once again.”

During his two years in the French capital, the 29-year-old secured nine pieces of silverware, including back-to-back Ligue 1 titles.

Luiz has notched up 143 appearances for Chelsea during his previous spell with the Blues.
