Arsenal star David Luiz admits he wants to return to Benfica and never wanted to leave in the first place – The Sun

ARSENAL star David Luiz has admitted he wants to return to former club Benfica before he retires.

The defender, 33, made his name with the Portuguese giants before he reluctantly joined Chelsea in 2011.

Luiz was just 19 when he signed for Benfica in 2007 after initially joining them on loan from Brazilian club Vitoria.

He spent four years with the Primeira Liga side before the Blues forked out £21.5million to secure his services.

The defender is now under contract with Arsenal until next year, but has no intentions of finishing his career in North London.

Speaking to SporTV, Luiz revealed he wants to star at the Estadio da Luz once more before he hangs up his boots.

He said: "I never lost my connection with Benfica, I have that in my heart, everybody knows I want to come back.
