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.
