Arsenal defender David Luiz has reiterated his ‘dream’ to end his career back at Benfica.

The Brazilian first arrived in European football when he joined the Portuguese side on loan from Vitoria in January 2007, a deal which was made permanent six months later.

He spent a total of four years with the club, winning the league title in 2009/10, before joining Chelsea in 2011.

The 33-year-old was a surprise signing for then Gunners boss Unai Emery last summer but has become a regular at the heart of the defence.

However, he only agreed a two-year contract at the Emirates and will therefore be entering the final year of his deal this summer.

“I always said that I would like to end my career at Benfica,” he told the club’s official website. “In football everything changes, what is true today, tomorrow is a lie, but my feeling is not!

“I love Benfica. My dream is to step on the pitch of Estadio da Light in their colours.

“For all that I lived and felt, for what Benfica is in my life and in my history, for everything, Benfica is bigger than any player.”
