Former Chelsea and Arsenal defender David Luiz has reached a “verbal agreement” with Flamengo over a move to Brazil.
The centre-back has spent eight-and-a-half years in the Premier League throughout his career.
Luiz first made the move to England in 2011 as he joined Chelsea from Benfica. He won the Champions League during his first spell at the club.
The Brazilian re-joined Chelsea in 2016 after a couple of years in France with PSG. He enjoyed a successful couple of seasons as he helped his side win the Premier League title in 2016/17.
Luiz left the Blues for a second time in 2019 as he moved to their London rivals Arsenal for a fee in the region of £8m.
The 34-year-old played 73 times for the Gunners over the past two seasons. He left in July when his contract at the club expired.
He has been without a team since then but he now looks set to return to Brazil to sign for Flamengo.
Reliable journalist Fabrizio Romano has reported (via Twitter) that Luiz is “set to join” the Brazilian side. He adds that a “verbal agreement” has been reached and he will sign a deal until 2022.
