Luiz: I Start A New Round In Paris

David Luiz revealed that he is excited to be joining Paris St Germain after the centre back joined the French champions for a reported £50m.

The move to France will make the Chelsea player the most expensive defender, a title which was previously held by his international team-mate and PSG star Thiago Silva.

Luiz did try and fight for his place at the London giants but found himself playing second fiddle behind England’s John Terry and Gary Cahill.

"I tried to fix everything before coming to selection,” the Brazilian said.

"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 cannot 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."
