Chelsea defender David Luiz has revealed that Barcelona made a bid for his services this summer.
But 26-year-old decided to rebuff the Catalan giants,
"There was an official offer but I decided to stay at Chelsea," he told the press ahead of Brazil’s friendly against Australia on Saturday.
"It was the best option for me and everyone else."
Luiz also admitted that he is looking forward to this season: "It’s nice to play teams with great histories. I’m happy to be playing for a big club and representing the Brazil national team."
