David Luiz is going back to Chelsea and Twitter is having none of it

You might remember David Luiz from his time at Chelsea. He won the Champions League, Europa League and FA Cup while at Stamford Bridge, and was a bit cheeky as well.

The move took many by surprise, but it seems that Luiz was the one who forced the deal through, rather than Paris Saint-Germain.

With quick social media reactions like this, that is entirely believable.

One of Luiz’s potential new team mates all but confirmed the move on Twitter.

It’s almost unbelievable how much the Sideshow Bob lookalike has accumulated in transfer fees.

And some have been critical regarding the incentives behind the move. Will Luiz improve Chelsea as a football team?

On closer inspection, Chelsea seem to be adopting a hokey cokey approach to their transfer policy.

It seems that Sky Sports News were more excited than the fans…

Ouch.

Meanwhile, others have a little more belief that this could actually be a good signing.

Welcome back to the Premier League, David!
