£40m Luiz leaves Chelsea tomorrow - New team-mate dubs him a 'warrior'

David Luiz

David Luiz has been hailed a 'warrior' by future Paris Saint-Germain team-mate Thiago Silva.

Tomorrow sees the transfer window open again and their are of course several deals already in place, just waiting to be confirmed.

One such deal which should go through tomorrow will be David Luiz's transfer to Paris Saint-Germain. The French champions have reportedly spent £50 million on the signature of the divisive Brazilian and he will exit as Kurt Zouma, Mario Pasalic, Cesc Fabregas and potentially Diego Costa all arrive.

But at the moment Luiz is of course at the World Cup - and he played a huge role in Brazil's exciting victory against Chile over the weekend.

He has been credited with the opening goal for Selecao that gave them the 1-0 lead. He also fired home a penalty in the shootout as Brazil sent their South American rivals packing.

Buy tomorrow Luiz will be a PSG player - where he will partner up with his Brazilian international team-mate Thiago Silva, the man whose record he is breaking as the world's most expensive defender.

The pair played well against Chile, as the centre-backs continue to look like the force that might take Brazil all the way to glory.

And Silva has been singing the praises of Luiz after his performance, especially as Luiz has been playing with a constant back problem.

He said:

We suffered, we know Chile would push us back and they deserve credit:

"We know they are very mobile and that made it hard for me and David (Luiz), especially him with his sore back. The defender went on to praise his fellow central back, especially with Luiz suffering from back troubles. Luiz was a warrior today, and that shows the strength and the unity we have. It is going to get harder. We have three games to realize our dreams and the dreams of Brazilians."

Chelsea are looking forward to the future with Luiz on his way out of the door. Chelsea fans are pleased to take £50 million off of the French side for a player with questionable defensive qualities. Silva on the other hand is pleased to have his warrior at PSG next season.
