Chelsea defender David Luiz has revealed he has been speaking with some of his Brazilian team-mates about the 'project' underway at Paris Saint-Germain amidst rumours he could be leaving west London.

Reports earlier this month suggested that new Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho was willing to let Luiz leave the club if an appropriate bid was made.

The Brazilian has come in for criticism during his time with Chelsea but emerged as one of the Blues' strongest players last season.

The 26-year-old has continuously been linked with a move to the likes of Barcelona and PSG, something his comments regarding the Ligue 1 champions won't have helped.

"I'm talking a lot about PSG and its project with Brazilian players," said Luiz, who is currently away on international duty with Brazil at the Confederations Cup.

"The club did a good job in Ligue 1, and they have very good players like Lucas Moura, Thiago Motta, Maxwell and Thiago Silva. And I don't speak about it with others, just Brazilians."

Luiz has made 109 appearances for the Blues since joining from Benfica in 2011 for around €25 million.
