The Chelsea fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern just cannot decide how they feel about this deal!
In one of the most shocking stories of the summer, Sky Sports last night revealed that Chelsea were looking to re-sign PSG defender David Luiz – with a £32 million bid reportedly put in for the defender. Nobody in the Football Transfer Tavern was expecting that!
Now, with just under 12 hours left until the Premier League Transfer Window closes – Chelsea’s move for the divisive defender is one step closer…
According to Daily Mail correspondent Lee Clayton, Chelsea’s move for Luiz is ‘edging closer’ – with a deal expected to be concluded today. See the tweet confirming the news below…

The news contrasts with a recent report by Sky Sports, who suggested that the clubs were “some way apart” on agreeing a deal for the defender.
The proposed deal has caused a storm in the Football Transfer Tavern today, with Chelsea fans unable to decide if the move is genius or just plain crazy!
Our landlord has suggested that whilst he can be reckless; there is no better manager for Luiz than Antonio Conte. If the Italian boss can drill the mistakes out of Luiz – he could prove a real success back at Stamford Bridge.
Something that Chelsea fans can agree on however is their mutual love for the 29-year-old – with the defender cementing his cult status by scoring a penalty en-route to Chelsea’s 2012 Champion’s League victory. Relive that moment below…
There’s no denying that Luiz is a reckless defender – but on a technical level there is absolutely nobody better. Our landlord is definitely on the side of this deal being a good one…
Chelsea fans – thoughts? Would you take Luiz back at Stamford Bridge?
