David Luiz urging Neymar to choose Chelsea over Real Madrid, Barcelona

David Luiz admits he's working on Santos star Neymar about a move to Chelsea. Neymar is a major target for Real Madrid and Barcelona, but Luiz hopes to convince him about joining the Blues.

Chelsea assistant manager Roberto Di Matteo watched Neymar play for Brazil in Germany last month and the club will be buoyed by the knowledge that the 19-year-old is enjoying his time in the capital this week.

Luiz said: "I would definitely like Neymar in my team but it is up to him to decide where he wants to play. But I hope he signs for Chelsea.

"Neymar's getting to know London and he likes it very much. I love it here, too. It's one of the best cities in the world - all I miss is the beach."
