David Luiz can understand Neymar rejecting Chelsea move

Chelsea defender David Luiz has no problem with Neymar choosing to stay with Santos.

Upon penning a new deal last week with Santos, Neymar revealed he could've joined Chelsea last year.

"This is what is in his heart," said Luiz. "He works with what's inside his heart. He demonstrates this to everyone who has love for Santos and love that he is playing in Brazil.

"Neymar has a structure in place, his parents are always walking beside him and this has helped him in this choice. Before, people only saw Brazil as a raw material. Now things are different."
