Chelsea defender David Luiz has stated that he would love to remain at Stamford Bridge beyond this season.

The Brazilian defender has become a key man under Maurizio Sarri and is also a mainstay in the Chelsea side this season.

David Luiz spent the most part of last season on the sidelines and on the bench under Antonio Conte but has established himself as a starter this season.

The defender has been impressive and has been instrumental in Chelsea’s bid to build from the back this season.

Goal.com have now claimed that the 31-year-old is eager to remain a Chelsea player although his contract expires in the summer.

However, Chelsea are yet to begin any negotiations with David Luiz, therefore, leaving the player in a place of uncertainty, as the club continues making efforts to wrestle the Premier League title away from Manchester City.

Chelsea have a policy that does not favor the offering of contracts to players above 30.
