Luiz arrived in London at St Pancras train station ahead of his proposed move and eventually completed terms on a three-year contract.He was in Paris on Tuesday and, when he heard PSG had rejected Chelsea’s interest in him, he sought out both PSG’s president Nasser Al-Khelaifi and their sporting director – his fellow countryman Leonardo – in an attempt to convince them to let him go.

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