  • Chelsea Defender David Luiz Signs New Contract
  • David Luiz ended speculation surrounding his Chelsea future by signing a new deal with the club.

    The club announced on Friday that the defender had extended his contract with Chelsea and will be under contract through the 2020-21 campaign.

    Luis has made 48 appearances across all competitions this campaign while scoring three goals as he’s become one of Maurizio Sarri’s go-to players after falling down the depth chart under previous manager Antonio Conte.

    The Brazilian has also guided Chelsea to the Europa League final, where the club will face Arsenal after dispatching Eintracht Frankfurt in penalties in the semi-final round.

    “I am so happy to be here and to have this opportunity to stay. I love this club and I still have the ambition of a young player,” Luiz said in a statement.

    “It means a lot to reach another European final, and we still have the opportunity to finish in the top three of the Premier League this season and I will continue to try to do my best to help the team.”
