PSG defender Luiz urges Anderson Talisca to resist Chelsea offer

PSG defender David Luiz has urged Brazil teammate Anderson Talisca to sit tight with Benfica.

Luiz believes that Talisca shouldn't rush into a move to his former club Chelsea - and also disappoint Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United.

He said: "Talisca is having a great season and deserves the accolades he is getting from around the world.

"I just hope that he can continue playing well because he will be very important for Brazil.

"I saw him playing when he was still at Bahia. He is a player of great quality.

"He had the good fortune to fall into the hands on Jorge Jesus. He's a coach that improves his players.

"Every year we see Benfica sell three or four players with six or seven others the subject of offers.

"Jorge Jesus empowers and teaches players though. Talisca still has plenty to learn and I'm sure he'll get better in the future."
