The Deal Had To Be Done!
And so it turns out the only Chelsea shirt I have with a players` name on is now defunct.
The home shirt from the last time we defended the Premier League crown will now be confined to the bottom of the draw.
Although the deal hasn`t exactly been done and dusted, with that being left until after the 2014 World Cup, a PSG statement confirms the deal is done with the statement reading,
"In accordance with the players` wish to prepare for the World Cup in the best possible conditions, both clubs and David Luiz wished to reach an agreement as soon as possible."
So 'Sideshow Bob` is a Chelsea player no more, he leaves us with some wonderful memories, including that marvellous night in the Allianz Arena, against Bayern Munich, when he shook off a injury to produce an exceptional performance.
But, with the money on offer, did Chelsea really have any option other than to sell somebody who had become a squad player under Jose and somebody whose rash moments often led to disaster, I think not!
