Luiz ‘happier in Paris than Barca’

David Luiz has suggested he turned down the chance to join Barcelona to sign instead for Paris Saint-Germain.

Luiz this summer left Chelsea to head to Ligue 1 and has told French television that he picked PSG because he felt it was a better long-term decision.

“I’m sure I’ll be happier in Paris than I would have been in Barca or Munich,” AS reports the Brazil international as saying.

“I really think PSG is the club of the future so I’m happy to be here and I think I’ll stay for many years.

“I talked a lot with Thiago Silva and Laurent Blanc. My decision was made easy by PSG.

“The great objective is the Champions League, that is the dream.”
