Le Parisien have added the latest fuel to the fire in the ever-developing David Luiz saga, claiming that he has taken the the Eurostar Wednesday afternoon to London to attempt to complete his return before the transfer deadline.

The Daily Mail are usually not ones we hold close when it comes to reliable transfer rumours, but they seem to be in the loop regarding Chelsea’s SHOCK/SENSATIONAL/other alarming adjective Deadline Day move for the Brazillian.

The latest from Mail is that a deal has been agreed with Paris Saint-Germain in the region of £32million, and that the club are ‘preparing to announce’ the deal.

Also entering the fray for in-the-knows for this deal are beIN Sports, who also claim that a fee has been agreed between the clubs.

On the other hand, Brazil's biggest news outlet, Globo, claim that while Luiz is set on a return to London, PSG have increased their asking price to £45 million, in response to Chelsea's apparent offer of £40 million. Reports, reports, everywhere but not a confirmation to take in!

Is this actually, actually happening? One way to find out.
