Luiz Close to New Chelsea Deal
Chelsea defender David Luiz is close to agreeing a new contract with the club, according to the player himself. The Brazilian’s current deal expires in June.
But Luiz is positive an agreement is close, “Yes I think so. Soon everybody is going to know. It will be before the Europa League final, in five days.
“I love this club. My great moments in football were here, especially the European titles – the Champions League and Europa League.
“My relation with the fans has always been great since the first day I played here. I just try to do my best and make them happy.
“Nobody wants to play in an empty stadium when you have an opportunity to understand that we play for them.”
The Blues have finished 3 rd in the Premier League and are looking forward to a Europa League Final against Arsenal in Baku.
“It is going to be a difficult game, they have a great team and a great coach,” said Luiz. “He (Unai Emery) knows how to win this competition.
“I worked with him a bit in Paris and I know how passionate he is. He knows how to play these kind of games. It is up to us to prepare well.
“We have to try to win the trophy. We know that if we win they will not be in the Champions League. This will be better for us because we put a fantastic team out of the Champions League.”
