Inter Milan have been linked with a return to Europe for former Chelsea and Arsenal striker David Luiz, who returned to Brazil a year ago.
Flamengo acquired the services of the former Arsenal center-back in September of last year. In spite of this, the Brazilian club has offered him to Inter Milan, according to Goal. It’s now up to Serie A’s most prestigious clubs to decide whether or not to make a bid for the defender.
David Luiz won trophies in Portugal, England, and France, as well as 57 caps for Brazil, during his time in Europe. In four and a half years with Benfica, he won four trophies and attracted the attention of big clubs, which led to his move to Chelsea.
He won three championships in four years during his first spell with the Blues, including the Champions League and the Europa League. In 2014, he returned to Paris Saint-Germain, where he enjoyed another great stint. Before returning to Stamford Bridge for a second term, the Brazilian won seven trophies. He won the Premier League and another Europa League during that time. With another FA Cup and Community Shield under his belt, Luiz was sold to Arsenal in 2019. During his second season, though, he lost the favor of manager Mikel Arteta. Flamengo signed the 35-year-old to a 15-month contract in September 2021. However, he could now be headed back to Europe for a second time, which would mark the end of his professional career as we know it.
Luiz’s international career has been on hold since the FIFA World Cup was held in Qatar in 2017.
It’s doubtful that he’ll play for Brazil again after his time with the Canaries in the 2013 Confederations Cup and 2014 FIFA World Cup.
Is Inter Milan the right club for David Luiz?
When it comes to Serie A, David Luiz should be banned from the San Siro.
Even though the Brazilian has a lot of expertise, his final years in Europe were marred by a slew of mistakes. When he was at Arsenal and in his final days at Chelsea, he didn’t seem to be the same force he had been earlier and more of a liability in defense. If Inter Milan were to pursue David Luiz, they would be taking a significant risk.
