Chelsea have announced an agreement with PSG to re-sign David Luiz in a reported deal close to £32million. Luiz was sold by The Blues back in 2014 but Antonio Conte pushed for his return which will be announced in the next few hours.

Luiz’s return to Stamford Bridge was first reported by Sky Sports last night who out of no where confirmed that Luiz has a medical booked at Chelsea’s Cobham training facility at 6:00 PM, BST and will sign for the club before the end of transfer deadline day.
Conte was keen to bring a powerful defender to the club and after failing to agree a deal for Leonardo Bonucci, Kalidou Koulibaly and Alessio Romagnoli. Blues even tried to sign Angelo Ogbonna from West Ham in a panic move last night.
However, after those vague approaches, Chelsea finally got their hands on David Luiz who had suffered a troubling start to the new Ligue 1 season under new manager Unay Emery.
Luiz’s PSG career was all but over after being substituted last weekend which allowed Chelsea to make their move and sign their former star.
