Luiz, 26, has been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge following the return of Jose Mourinho as coach.

Reports in both Britain and France have suggested the centre-back could end up at the Parc des Princes, where several of his compatriots made major contributions to the Ligue 1 success.

"I speak about Paris Saint-Germain and its project with my Brazilian team-mates," Luiz, who is on Confederations Cup alongside PSG duo Thiago Silva and Lucas, told TF1.

"The club has done some good work in Ligue 1, and there are some very good players such as Lucas Moura, Thiago Motta, Maxwell, Thiago Silva."

Former Benfica man Luiz, who played alongside Silva at the heart of the Selecao defence in their 3-0 win over Japan on Saturday, would cost around €45 million, according to French media reports.
