David Luiz's Chelsea future has
finally been resolved after he
signed a new two-year deal
through to 2021.
The Brazil defender's current Blues
deal was due to expite at the end
of the season, with the 32-year-old
having been in protracted talks
with the club over an extension.

has been a mainstay in Maurizio
Sarri's side this season, will now
remain at Stamford Bridge until
June 2021.

all competitions and scoring three
goals, helping Chelsea secure a top-
four finish in the Premier League
and book a place in the Europa
League final against Arsenal .

contract with Chelsea
He said: "I am so happy to be here
and to have this opportunity to
stay. I love this club and I still have
the ambition of a young player.
"It means a lot to reach another
European final, and we still have
the opportunity to finish in the top
three of the Premier League this
season and I will continue to try to
do my best to help the team."

rule of not handing new deals to
players over the age of 30, with
former captains John Terry and
Frank Lampard among those to
leave in recent seasons.

delighted David Luiz will be staying

top-four Premier League finish, and

coach," said Luiz.

win this competition. I worked
