David Luiz will leave Chelsea in summer
Most likely, the Pensioners will look for a new defender. David Luiz’s contract with Chelsea is valid until next summer.
There is a very little chance that a new one will be signed.
The fact is that the player will be 32 years old next year. And according to Chelsea’s domestic policy, they do not offer a contract to a player who is over 30 years old for more than one season.
According to The Times, this situation does not suit Luiz and he will leave the club as a free agent.
Though, Maurizio Sarri is against the sale of Luiz. The defender regained his place in the starting line-up after Maurizio’s appointment, as the boss believes in the Brazillian.
However, despite the disagreement of the allenatore, Chelsea will not offer a contract to Luiz for more than one season.
