Chelsea open contract talks with David Luiz

Chelsea open contract talks with David Luiz Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has confirmed to reporters that defender David Luiz has been in talks with the Blues about signing a new deal at Stamford Bridge, Goal report. The 32-year-old, who is in the third year of his second stint at the club, played every minute of Chelsea’s Europa League semi-final first leg draw against Eintracht Frankfurt on Thursday. Luiz’s current Chelsea deal expires at the end of the season and many have been left wondering if the central defender will depart Stamford Bridge for a second time when his contract expires.

Chelsea have been given hope of landing two of their key targets this transfer window after the respective agents of both Lorenzo Insigne and Kalidou Koulibaly revealed their clients are “ Chelsea ? They are a world class team that many players would like to join but I don’t want to talk about this now.”

“He would prefer to play somewhere in the first [team], but there are not that many central defenders of his age in the Netherlands get the chance. So, it’s about a choice where he can best develop in the youth.”

“At this moment, Chelsea have the best credentials. We now have to wait and see what his feeling is at that club. We are not quite sure yet what we are going to do, his development is central to that choice.”

“That remains to be seen, even for us. The people at Chelsea look at what is possible. It is not excluded that Mbuyamba may not even be covered by a transfer ban, because he is still an amateur. But that’s guessing.”

It remains unclear as to what will happen regarding Mbuyamba’s future, however, if Chelsea can somehow gain the services of the highly-rated defender, they may well have found their new central defender for the next decade.
