Luiz completes Chelsea return

David Luiz has returned to Stamford Bridge after signing a three-year deal with Chelsea.

The Brazil international defender arrives from Paris St-Germain for a fee of around £34m. He joined PSG from the Blues for a reported £50m in 2014 after more than three years in west London.

“I’m delighted to return to Chelsea. We had a fantastic story during my first time at the club and I want to help the team and Antonio Conte achieve a lot of success,” Luiz told the club’s official website.

“I always had a wonderful relationship with the fans and I am looking forward to wearing the blue shirt at Stamford Bridge once again.”

Capped 56 times by Brazul, Luiz enjoyed a successful spell with Chelsea after joining the club from Benfica, winning the Champions League and FA Cup in 2012, and the Europa League a year later.

The Blues also signed left-back Marcos Alonso from Fiorentina on deadline day, while Juan Cuadrado joined Juventus on a three-year loan deal.
