IT'S OFF: Marseille pull out of talks with released Arsenal defender David Luiz

Released Arsenal defender David Luiz's move to Olympique Marseille has fallen through.

After weeks of negotiations, La Provence says the deal is off.

The Brazilian's wage demands fell out of range for OM's current salary budget - and there was also Luiz's PSG background.

A growing backlash from fans had also weighed heavily in OM's decision to pull out of talks with the player's minders.

Luiz, meanwhile, remains hopeful of continuing his career in Europe this coming season.
