Chelsea and Paris Saint Germain have agreed a potentially record-breaking fee for the sale of defender David Luiz to the French champions.

British media report the 27-year-old would be signed for between 50 and 60-million euro.

Luiz left Benfica to join the Blues for 26 million euro in January 2011.

Subject to a satisfactory medical examination and certain personal terms being agreed, the signing to PSG would surpass the 44 million the Qatari-backed club paid for fellow Brazilian Thiago Silva.

Luiz has three years left on the five-year contract he signed at Stamford Bridge.

In a statement, PSG said they’d like to reach a quick agreement with the defender, who will form part of Brazil’s World Cup squad in this summer’s competition.

In the last two summers, Barcelona have also shown interest in him.
