Chelsea fans bemused by the club's attempts to re-sign David Luiz [Tweets]Published August 31, 2016
Chelsea fans have woken up on Wednesday morning to some rather bemusing news.
It’s no secret that Blues boss Antonio Conte, is desperate to sign another defender before Wednesday’s transfer deadline, with the West London side only able to register one clean sheet in their opening three Premier League matches.
The Blues have been linked with Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci, and Napoli’s highly-rated centre-back Kalidou Koulibaly, but it appears that the Chelsea boss has his sights set on a familiar face.
According to Sky Sports, Chelsea have made a £30m+ bid for former defender David Luiz, who currently plays for French giants PSG.
The 29-year-old Brazilian left Stamford Bridge for France two years ago in a £50m deal which was a world record fee for a defender.
Although Luiz is a fan favourite at Stamford Bridge, it could be argued that he was love more for his flamboyant personality, than his actual defending ability.
Whilst the two club’s look to agree a deal before today’s transfer deadline, Chelsea fans have taken to Twitter to have their say, on David Luiz’s potential return to West London.
