David Luiz to play alongside Mario Balotelli at new club

David Luiz has been lined up to play alongside Mario Balotelli – for Turkish minnows Adana Demirspor.

The Brazil international, 34, is a free agent after his Arsenal contract expired two weeks ago.

And club president Murat Sancak revealed talks are underway with Luiz and his advisors.

He told Turkish media: “The discussions with David Luiz are going to continue. I hope we can soon reach an agreement.

“When salaries are very high, one needs to negotiate a little.

“We are getting ready for the new season, and I urge our fans to get ready as well.

“We have signed a world-class star in Balotelli, and added Younes Belhanda to our squad.

“We will sign three or four more players before the season begins.”
