David Luiz’s future at Chelsea has long since been up in the air with the club’s strict policy for over-3o’s surely a sticking point in any negotiations with the commanding Brazilian, whose second spell at Stamford Bridge will come to an end in the summer if he cannot agree new terms with the west London outfit.
With Gary Cahill also looking unlikely to have remained a Blue come the 2019/20 season, Chelsea face losing two of their most experienced defenders in one window – an alarming prospect for the fans, surely.
However, former PSG man Luiz has spoken to The Evening Standard about his current situation and future at the club – his words may ease some concern over potentially damaging summer of exits:
“We are talking with the club. Everybody knows I love this club, I feel comfortable here and am happy here. I am doing my job very well so I think a lot is going to happen.”
Chelsea fans are currently preparing themselves for the departure of Eden Hazard, who is surely more likely now than ever to leave for Real Madrid considering Zinedine Zidane’s sensational return to the Santiago Bernabeu.
Kieran Trippier’s own goal against Chelsea looks even funnier up close. Just ask Thogden in the video below…
While they would surely prefer if Luiz’s words were coming out of the influential Belgian’s mouth, they will surely take any consolation they can get in the coming months as we near a summer that is expected to be extremely damaging for Chelsea.
The Blues are unable to sign any players due to a two-window transfer embargo but look set to lose a number of key players so next season represents a huge challenge to Maurizio Sarri – or whoever is in charge – and his men.
Luiz is a natural-born leader and his remaining at Stamford Bridge will be crucial to maintaining some form of stability in what promises to be a challenging period for the club, although the number 30 doesn’t want to make any promises.
The last line of his response is particularly cryptic and clearly a big decision faces the centre-back in the coming months – will he still be a Chelsea man come next campaign?
