3:11 pm on 24 May 2014

The English football club Chelsea has agreed a deal with Paris St-Germain, worth in the region of 80 million dollars, for the sale of defender David Luiz to the French champions.

27-year-old Luiz joined the Blues from Benfica for 42 million dollars in January 2011.

The Brazilian has three years left on the five-year contract he signed at Stamford Bridge in September 2012.

Luiz has been the subject of interest from Barcelona in the last two years, but French champions PSG - despite recently failing Uefa's financial fair play rules - will break the transfer record for a defender to secure his services.
