It was a huge talking point here in the Football Transfer Tavern yesterday, with the Chelsea faithful split on how they viewed the signing of David Luiz…
Chelsea confirmed the signing of the divisive star with minutes to spare last night, and support for the deal in the Tavern was definitely not unanimous.
In fact, some of more vocal members of the Chelsea faithful in the Tavern were angry with the deal, citing the Brazilian defender’s inconsistency as a key factor.
Regardless of how the Chelsea fans feel about the deal, the reported £30 million transfer fee associated with the transfer definitely implies that Luiz will play a key role with the Blues this season.
With Antonio Conte vocal about his side’s lack of defensive depth – our landlord thinks that it’s safe to assume that he will play as a central defender going forward.
Alongside Conte’s other deadline day signing Marcos Alonso, our bar staff think that David Luiz could become a part of a new look Chelsea defence as the Blues look to challenge for the title this season.
With that, this is the ULTIMATE Chelsea defence including David Luiz – agreed?
