PSG defender David Luiz reveals he nearly joined Barcelona

Published Add your comment

Former Chelsea defender David Luiz has revealed he came close to joining Barcelona this summer prior to his £50m transfer to Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain. The Brazil international is set to face his old club when PSG take on the Blues in the Champions League this evening, and Luiz has spoken positively about his first few months in France, insisting he has no regrets about leaving Stamford Bridge. The 27-year-old was only a bit-part player under Jose Mourinho as the Portuguese coach grew concerned by his erratic displays, and opted to cash-in when a big-money offer was made for the South American's services.
