Chelsea Reveal David Luiz’s Number After Return From PSG

Chelsea Reveal David Luiz’s Number After Return From PSG

Chelsea have handed David Luiz the number 30 shirt after his return from Paris Saint-Germain.

The Brazilian defender is a Stamford Bridge player again two years after the club sold him to the French champions in a £50million transfer.

Both clubs agreed a £34m deal to send him back to London and he penned a three-year deal last night as boss Antonio Conte’s final signing of the summer transfer window.

Chelsea fans will fondly remember the entertaining Luiz wearing number four during his first spell at the club.

But he’s missed out on that shirt on his return because it belongs to Spanish midfielder Cesc Fabregas – and despite speculation linking him with a move away, he’s remained with the Blues for the time-being.

So Luiz will instead don the 30 shirt after Chelsea confirmed their squad numbers this afternoon:

Fellow deadline day signing Mikel Alonso – who joined in a £23million deal – has been given the number three shirt.

Both players should now be available for Chelsea’s next game against Swansea after the international break.
