Palmeiras hope to tempt Chelsea defender Luiz back home

Palmeiras are watching David Luiz's situation at Chelsea.

The Brazil defender, off contract in June, is in dispute with Chelsea as they refuse to offer him more than a rolling one-year deal as he's over 30 years of age.

"We will see what the future will bring us. I like this club, everyone knows that I want to stay," said Luiz.

However, despite his words, the defender is putting plans in place for next season with a return to Benfica considered.

Palmeiras are also in the mix, says Fox Sports Brasil, with an approach now being prepared.
