Brazilian defender David Luiz has bid farewell to Chelsea fans in a farewell letter that he posted on his official Instagram account.
Luiz will be joining Paris Saint-Germain, pending personal terms and passing a medical fee, for a whopping £48million transfer fee. Before he officially joins PSG, he wrote this heartfelt message to Chelsea supporters:
“Thanks Chelsea for the three and half years of a great partnership.
“I’ve made good friends, won many titles and those memories will last with me forever.
“I’d like to thank my team mates, all staff and all supporters (my geezers).
“I’m leaving with great sadness but at the same time excited for the new challenge that lies ahead in this great club in a city that have always enchanted me.
“It’s a new stage, new challenge and together we will go even further.
At Chelsea, Luiz lit up the Premier League with his unconventional defending, midfield prowess and zany character. He will be missed.
