David Luiz

The Brazilian defender is ready to sign for Paris Saint-Germain and has admitted he is looking forward to his switch to the French capital.

Chelsea have cashed-in on Brazilian defender David Luiz, who is set to sign for Paris Saint-Germain when the transfer window reopens for a world record fee for a defender.

The versatile centre-half or central midfielder is on international duty with Brazil and has spoken about his excitement of joining Laurent Blanc’s men.

"I tried to fix everything before coming to the Selecao,” Luiz told reporters, publish in The Daily Star.

"This is a new stage, a new project, a new country, a new language ... I was very happy at Chelsea, I gained titles, but the end of the cycle has arrived. I'll start a new round in Paris.

"It will be announced when the window will open. But I can say that everything is signed with Paris and I am very happy.

"I am privileged, I played in big clubs, big cities in the world. I can not complain. I want to represent the best Paris. Achieving the club, winning titles, and especially show the true David Luiz as a player and a human being."

Chelsea are widely expected to reinvest the money received from Luiz’s sale to bring new players to Stamford Bridge.

Luiz joined the Blues from Benfica in 2011, making over 80 Premier League appearances for Chelsea.
