Chelsea defender David Luiz has hinted at a Stamford Bridge departure this summer.

According to ESPN, the central defender admitted he loves Paris and praised PSG as a "big club and a great name."

The quotes are particularly timely as the Brazilian international has been linked with a move to PSG over the last few months, and he went on to say that he enjoys playing with international teammate Thiago Silva, who plays his club football at the Parc des Princes.

"I love the city, it's a super city," Luiz said. "When I have some spare time, I jump on a train and I go there. I love it.

"We'll see. You never know. PSG are a big club now, a great name. They're working flat out to win the Champions League, they're certainly going to win the French title for many seasons to come, so they're a big club."

Earlier this month PSG boss Laurent Blanc confirmed his club's interest in Luiz and his Chelsea colleague Oscar. Both Stamford Bridge first-teamers should star for Brazil at this summer's World Cup, with Luiz likely to partner Silva in the defence.

"It's cool to play with him," Luiz added. "I love playing with him, it doesn't matter where. If it were in the street, like when we were kids, that would suit me fine too."

Several Chelsea stars have been linked with a move to the French capital, including Eden Hazard.

And while Chelsea are expected to strengthen this summer, it is believed that Jose Mourinho will not stand in Luiz's way if he wants to depart before the World Cup.

Mourinho often opted for John Terry and Gary Cahill as his first-choice defensive pair, with youngster Tomas Kalas also showing promise in the position towards the end of the season.
