EXCLUSIVE: David Luiz signs new chelsea deal until 2021


The Brazilian has enjoyed a fine season at the heart of the Blues’ defence, making 48 appearances across the campaign and scoring three goals as we sealed a return to the Champions League and booked our place in the Europa League final.

Upon extending his stay with Chelsea, David Luiz said: ‘I am so happy to be here and to have this opportunity to stay. I love this club and I still have the ambition of a young player.

‘It means a lot to reach another European final, and we still have the opportunity to finish in the top three of the Premier League this season and I will continue to try to do my best to help the team.’

Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia added: ‘We are delighted David Luiz will be staying with the club.

‘He has set the perfect example to those around him throughout the campaign and been a huge influence on and off the pitch.

‘With the Europa League final still to come, we hope to finish off the season with silverware and David will be central to that success in Baku and beyond.’DAVID LUIZ WILL BE A CHELSEA PLAYER UNTIL 2021!

David Luiz has had an impressively consistent campaign, highlighted by his 35 league appearances, his most ever, and the knowledge that only Liverpool and Manchester City have kept more clean sheets in the Premier League than Chelsea.

His experience, determination and leadership, coupled with his ability on the ball, have made him a key figure within Maurizio Sarri’s system and he will be looking for a third European final success with the Blues when we travel to Baku at the end of the month.

So far in his Chelsea career, David Luiz has made a total 246 appearances, scoring 18 goals.
