Sarri Confirms Luiz Talks
Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has confirmed that talks are ongoing with David Luiz with regards to extending his Chelsea contract.
The Brazilian is out of contract in the summer and, at 32, Chelsea are reportedly not willing to give him more than a one year deal, resulting in a standoff.
But Blues boss Sarri says Chelsea and Luiz’s representatives are still talking, in the wake of Thursday’s 1-1 draw with Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League semi-finals.
“I don’t know on David Luiz, I know that he had a meeting four or five days ago, but then my mind was on this match,” said Sarri. “I didn’t ask him the result of it.”
“If you want, I will ask him tomorrow,” Sarri added. Luiz is in his second spell at the club, after rejoining the club from Paris Saint Germain in 2016.
