David Luiz: One of the big reasons why I left Chelsea


Former Chelsea defender David Luiz says Zlatan Ibrahimovic was one of the reason why he left the Blues to join Paris Saint-Germain last summer.

The 27-year-old was heavily linked with a move to Barcelona before he opted for the French giants and says the Sweden international convinced him to join the Les Rouge-et-Bleu when the two faced each other during last season's Champions League.

"He [Zlatan Ibrahimovic] was one of the big reasons that I chose to join Paris," Luiz told the Daily Mail.

"When Chelsea played Paris he said to me during the game, 'You need to come and play with us next season'.

"He is one of the best players in the world, and a great guy; there are two Zlatans: one the media portray and then the real one.

"Of course [Chelsea manager Jose] Mourinho knows Zlatan well from Inter and will have a plan to try and stop him, but when Zlatan is on form he is unstoppable."
