Mourinho: Chelsea in a transitional period

David Luiz has fuelled speculation he could leave Chelsea for Paris Saint-Germain this summer.

PSG coach Laurent Blanc admitted on Sunday that Luiz and his Chelsea team-mate Oscar 'will interest' the Ligue 1 winners, with Luiz telling television station TF1 of his admiration for both the club and the French capital.

"I love the city, it's a super city. When I have some spare time, I jump on a train and I go there. I love it," said Luiz, who was part of the Chelsea squad that beat PSG in this season's Champions League quarter-finals.

"We'll see. You never know. PSG are a big club now, a great name. They're working flat out to win the Champions League, they're certainly going to win the French title for many seasons to come, so they're a big club."

Should Luiz opt to leave Chelsea, whom he joined from Benfica in 2011, he would have the opportunity to team up with Brazil international team-mate Thiago Silva.

The pair will likely form the heart of Brazil's defence at the World Cup this summer and Luiz would clearly welcome the opportunity to feature more frequently with his national team captain.

"It's cool to play with him," added Luiz. "I love playing with him, it doesn't matter where. If it were in the street, like when we were kids, that would suit me fine too."
