David Luiz offered to Inter as ex-Premier League star tempted by Serie A move

The defender returned to his country last year but could be tempted to return to the Italian giants

Former Arsenal and Chelsea defender David Luiz could return to European football aged 35, after the veteran centre-back was offered to Inter by current club Flamengo.

He currently plays in his home country of Brazil, having joined the Rio de Janeiro side in September 2021 from Arsenal.

But OBJECTIVE understands he could make a spectacular return to Serie A with the Nerazzurri, who are considering making a bid for the defender.

What is Luiz’s current situation at Flamengo?

After leaving the Gunners last year, Luiz signed a 15-month contract with the Campeonato Brasileiro Serie A side to confirm his return to club football in his home country after a decade and a half absence.

Although he suffered a difficult start with an injury, he later recovered to become a semi-regular presence in their side, playing a part in their Copa Libertadores campaign and becoming an older statesman for the youngsters. club players.

But with his contract expiring at the end of this year, the possibility of a move elsewhere remained on the table – and now he could be set to return to club football at the top level in Europe.

What could Luiz achieve with a return to Europe?

A move to Serie A would represent the third of five major European leagues Luiz would have played in, having spent two separate spells with Chelsea alongside his spells with PSG and Arsenal.

At all three clubs he tasted success, with FA Cup and Champions League triumphs with Les Bleus in his first term, before Ligue 1 glory in France.

His return to Stamford Bridge gave a Premier League crown to boot – and then he was on hand to break the hearts of his former club when he started for the Gunners in their 2020 FA Cup final victory against their London rivals.

A return would give Luiz a credible chance to polish his already impressive collection of silverware, with Inter looking to reclaim the Serie A title they lost to neighbors AC Milan earlier this year.
