Defender David Luiz has signed a new five year deal with Chelsea that secures his long term future in West London after a confident start to the new season.
Luiz has been a vital part of Chelsea’s strong start in the Premier League and his new deal was announced after he helped the Blues keep a clean sheet in their home victory over Stoke on Saturday.
It was rumoured that both Barcelona and Manchester City were interested in the Chelsea centre back this summer but the Brazilian has confirmed he is very happy at Stamford Bridge.
Luiz told the club’s official website: “I am very happy to sign a new contract with Chelsea.
“It is a great club and I look forward to winning more trophies here. I want to play for a long time at the top level – which is what playing for Chelsea means.”
“I love everything about the club and especially the fans, who have made me very welcome and given me great support.”
