Chelsea and Brazilian defender David Luiz is currently in talks with the English side about signing a new contract.

Manager Maurizio Sarri confirmed after this after Chelsea’s 1-1 Europa League semi-final first-leg draw at Eintracht Frankfurt on Thursday.

Luiz’s contract expires at the end of the season, but Sarri says the club have held new discussions with the 32-year-old about an extension.

“I don’t know on David Luiz staying.

“I know that he had a meeting four or five days ago, but then my mind was on this match. I didn’t ask him the result of it. If you want, I will ask him on Friday,” Sarri said.

Laughing, he added: “If you want, I will ask him tomorrow.”

The centre-back returned from Paris Saint-Germain in 2016, and has played 34 times in the league this season.

The former Benfica man has won the Premier League, the Champions League, the Europa League and two FA Cups over a pair of stints at Stamford Bridge.
