Chelsea fans are on cloud nine here in the Football Transfer Tavern and the Daily Mail have made things that little bit better.
The publication contain quotes from Jose Mourinho, who has made it very clear just how impressed he was with David Luiz in the win over Paris Saint-Germain.
It was one of Luiz’s best displays in a Chelsea shirt, and ironically in front of one of his biggest suitors.
PSG have been linked with a huge bid for the player in the summer, but after his commanding display in the middle of the park, we think that Mourinho could well hang onto the Brazilian.
The Blues manager spoke after seeing his side go through to the Champions League semi-final draw on Friday and lavished praise on Luiz.
He claimed: ‘They worked like animals my midfield, David Luiz is a monster.”
It certainly seems that Luiz has a future in the middle of the park at the club, and along with Frank Lampard, he showed exactly why he deserves his deal at Stamford Bridge.
It was a night for Chelsea to remember, and as one of our punters points out, PSG coach Laurent Blanc may have been outfoxed by Jose Mourinho, but that did not stop him making sure that he shook Eden Hazard’s hand as the winger departed the field, increasing speculation over a bid for the Belgian star.
Do you think Luiz has done enough to earn himself a reprieve at Chelsea? Let us know your thoughts below.
