Luiz arrived from Chelsea last summer season and has actually played 32 times for Arsenal “He’s very pleased at Arsenal,” Joorabchian said. “He has an exceptionally good relationship with both the coach and the sporting director. He has excellent relationships all throughout the club, right up to the owner. He appreciates everyone.” Toolbox had an alternative, which expired. We likewise had a pandemic[coronavirus] So the alternative expired in the middle of the pandemic. We are all extremely aware of that situation and we are all trying, extremely slowly, to return to this ‘brand-new normal’.” These contract scenarios, these renewals, if he remains or if he goes … will all arrange themselves out when we return to some sort of ‘new typical’.” David will sit down with Arsenal prior to the season begins, have his conversations and they will both decide if he will stay or not. That will come prior to the season begins. The chances are really high[of Luiz being at Arsenal next season] There is no desire to leave.” Joorabchian also clarified current reports Luiz had said returning to former club Benfica might be a possibility, describing: “What he said was, ‘if the opportunity emerged in the future – prior to I retire – I could go back to Benfica and complete my career where I began it’. But he never discussed about wanting to return to Benfica now.” In addition, Joorabchian declined a recent report Luiz had actually cost Arsenal a total of ₤24 m for the 2019/20 season. Luiz’s final video game for Chelsea was the 4-1 win over Toolbox in the 2019 Europa League final According to The Athletic, Arsenal paid ₤ 8m to Chelsea and ₤ 6m to “intermediaries to repair everything up”, in addition to Luiz’s annual salary of ₤10 m.However, Joorabchian firmly insists the figure of ₤ 6m paid to intermediaries to broker the deal is inaccurate.” The representative’s fee that was reported by The Athletic is so, so, so wrong. The cost for David was less than 10 percent of that,” Joorabchian said.The Athletic have been approached by Sky Sports News for a remark in reaction.’ Willian wants to complete profession at very high level’ Joorabchian also exposed the reason Luiz’s Brazilian compatriot Willian is yet to sign a new agreement with Chelsea is that they can not reach an agreement about the length of the offer. 0: 45 Willian’s agent, Kia Joorabchian, says there have been no talks with Tottenham over a possible relocate to north London, and says the Brazilian at first wished to stay with Chelsea for another 3 years Willian’s representative, Kia Joorabchian, states there have actually been no talks with Tottenham over a possible move to north London, and states the Brazilian at first wanted to stay with Chelsea for another 3 years “Willian wanted to sign a three-year contract and after that see where his profession takes him,” Joorabchian informed Sky Sports News. “Chelsea’s policy only enables 2, so that’s where the sticking block was.” Chelsea have a policy, which we regard and comprehend, but Willian has a profession and he has ambition. He wishes to complete his playing profession at a really high level.” Joorabchian likewise soft-pedaled reports of Willian signing up with Jose Mourinho – who signed him for Chelsea in 2013 – at the Blues’ London competitors Tottenham next season.He said: “At the minute, he’s a Chelsea player. He has a contract with Chelsea until the season is over, so I believe it is disrespectful to discuss him moving to other clubs.” We have not spoken to Tottenham, or any other club, at the moment.”‘ Coutinho keen on Premier League return’ Former Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho has been offered to Premier League clubs – including Chelsea – with his Barcelona future unpredictable. 0: 33 Philippe Coutinho has a ‘desire’ to go back to the Premier League, according to his agent Kia Joorabchian Philippe Coutinho has a ‘desire’ to go back to the Premier League, according to his representative Kia Joorabchian validated the 27- year-old would be keen on a return to England, stating: “He has a desire to come back to the Premier League at some time.” It might not occur this year, it might occur this year – we do not understand.
