Chelsea leader David Luiz has his contract running down this summer and in the midst of rumours that he might be set to leave, his agent has said otherwise.
“Contrary to some reports we are in a very amicable situation with Chelsea. We are trying to work out a deal for David Luiz because he wants to stay, the manager wants him to stay and so does the club. I’m sure something will be worked out.”
Luiz has become one of the leaders at the club in his second spell at Chelsea and has taken them to one league title under Conte. He is also a mainstay under Maurizio Sarri and the defender would like to stay at the club for a longer time.
However, the rule in the Chelsea boardroom does not allow the players north of 30 to get contract extensions longer than a year. The problem seemed to be seeping in from that fact as Luiz wants a lengthier run.
However, according to his agent, things seemed to have been cleaned out and he is set to stay at the club, who also want to keep him and offer him a contract that would work or both parties.
