Arsenal defender David Luiz must take a pay cut of £38,000-a-week if he is to return to Benfica.

The 33-year-old previously spoke of his desire to return to the Portuguese club, for whom he played between 2007 and 2011.

As reported by The Mirror, Benfica have a salary cap of £32,000-a-week, which means Luiz would have to take a significant wage reduction. He currently earns around £120,000-a-week.

PICTURES: Thiago Silva and Ben Chilwell join Chelsea training

Published

Chelsea returned to training today (Wednesday) at Cobham, and there were two new faces joining the rest of the squad, Thiago Silva and Ben Chilwell. The two summer arrivals had yet to train with the squad since signing, dealing with quarantine (presumably) and heel injury issues, respectively.

It’s unclear if either will be fit and ready for this weekend’s match against Liverpool, but it’s still nice to see them in training with the rest of the group! (Those who played on Monday apparently had a lighter session, but were all out there nonetheless.)

There’s no word on how close Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic may be. Ziyech is probably still a couple weeks out with his knee problem, at least, but Pulisic was supposed to be close before suffering a potential setback with his hamstring late last week. Neither were pictured in training, and one would assume their presence would get emphasized had they been there.
