Former Chelsea defender David Luiz has claimed that he was advised by Zlatan Ibrahimovic to leave the London outfit for Paris St Germain.
Luiz became the world’s most expensive defender after making a £ 50 million move to the French capital in the summer.

The decision to sell the Brazilian has proven to be the right decision, as Chelsea have been much more solid in defence without the 27-year-old.
Luiz will be coming up against Chelsea for the first time since leaving the West London outfit in the Champions League knockout stages. The first leg will be at the French capital with the return leg at Stamford Bridge set almost a month away. Luiz has revealed that Ibrahimovic was a major factor in convincing him to move to PSG. The pair were seen together in the last season’s quarter-final. Chelsea won this match in remarkable circumstances and knocked out PSG from the quarter finals yet again.

Jose Mourinho has rejected speculation that Chelsea would be prepared to listen to offers for winger Mohamed Salah, who has slipped down the pecking order at the club.

However, Chelsea have been extremely lucky with regards to injuries in the last 12 months and Mohamed Salah has barely featured in the matchday squads especially the season.
His performances when picked for the less important competitions like the League Cup have also not been good enough to warrant a selection in the Premier League.
