According to Agência news Chelsea defender David Luiz aka Sideshow Bob has signed a five year deal with Catalan giants Barcelona that will see the 27-year-old leave Stamford Bridge this summer.

If the reports are true Barcelona will pay Chelsea €25 million for the Brazilian defender who is said to have agreed a contract that will keep him at the Nou Camp until 2019 where he will be paid €5.5 million per-season.

Barcelona were known to be in the market for a new centre-back following the retirement of Carles Puyol and Chelsea’s Luiz was a name long linked as a possible replacement for the Spanish international.
