David Luiz: PSG defender signed five-year deal after £50m move from Chelsea
Brazilian defender reveals all despite deal still not being confirmed
Friday 13 June 2014
David Luiz has revealed that he has signed a five-year deal with new club Paris Saint-Germain despite the French champions and Chelsea still to announce the deal.
The 27-year-old centre-back, who starred for Brazil in their 3-1 win over Croatia last night, told all in a radio interview before the game.
"I'm just concentrating on playing,” he told Globoesport. “I just signed a five-year contract with PSG.
"But what we plan for today might not be right for tomorrow.
"In the future I will have a child, a family and my priorities might change.
"You have to think of others, not just yourself.
"If a football player could plan his whole career, he would say: 'What I want is to play on this team, be a champion every year, and be selected for the national team.'"
However neither Chelsea or PSG have actually announced the £50m has gone through, despite Luiz completing a medical and agreeing personal terms.
