Flamengo and David Luiz haggling over contract terms

Flamengo are in advanced talks to sign former Arsenal defender David Luiz.

The 34 year-old defender remains a free agent, though is now close to sealing a return home to Fla.

Globoesporte says Luiz and Fla are currently thrashing out terms over his contract.

Luiz must accept a hefty cut on the wages he's enjoyed in Europe, though Fla are prepared to go higher than normal to reach an agreement.

The veteran is anxious to find himself a new club after missing the European preseason.
