How Twitter reacted to David Luiz’s potential Chelsea return

| 31.08.2016

Antonio Conte has made no secret of his desire to add more defensive options to his Chelsea squad before the transfer window closes and it appears he’s stumped for a familiar face to fill his need.

News emerged late on Deadline Day-eve that the Blues were in negotiations with Paris Saint-Germain to bring David Luiz back to Stamford Bridge.

The latest odds have Luiz at evens to make a sensational return to Chelsea.

As something of a cult figure during his previous stint at the club, reports that the west Londoners have bid around £30m for their former defender naturally caused a stir on Twitter.

Here’s the best of that reaction:

We like to think this Blues fan was so outraged with the deal that he forgot how to construct sentences by the end of his tweet

There was the rudimentary Sideshow Bob references:

While it appears Luiz has lost none of his ability to cause chaos while in France

Some people felt the move could work out

While there will be plenty more opportunity for comedy moments like this should the deal go through

All Odds and Markets are correct as of the date of publishing.
