Chelsea to sell defender again?

David Luiz could be set for a return to Benfica unless Chelsea open new contract talks with the Brazilian international. The Brazilian centre-back is a free agent in the summer and the Blues are yet to offer the 31-year-old an extension to stay at Stamford Bridge.

Reports in his homeland claim that Luiz is now in talks with Benfica, the Lisbon-based club he spent four years with before joining Chelsea for the first time in a £20million deal in 2011.

The Londoners then paid Paris St Germain £34million to re-sign the defender in 2016, two years after selling him to the French champions for £50million.  Palmeiras are interested in taking Luiz back to Brazil, with former Chelsea boss Luiz Felipe Scolari urging the club to do a deal.  But Luiz is believed to want to stay in Europe.

Luiz was named on the Chelsea bench for the midweek defeat to Tottenham at Wembley as Andreas Christensen was handed a rare start. The Blues return to Premier League action against Newcastle this weekend.
