Chelsea defender Luiz: My decision to reject Barcelona

Chelsea defender David Luiz says he turned down an offer from Barcelona.

Blues boss Jose Mourinho confirmed the bid from Barca last month and Luiz insists it was he who rejected the offer.

"There was an official bid (from Barcelona) but I decided to stay at Chelsea," Luiz told Gazeta Esportiva.

"I am happy to play for a big club and to be in the national team to represent my country."
