The soap opera with Flamengo and defender David Luiz is about to have a happy ending for those who support the club from Rio de Janeiro.

TNT Sports Brazil has confirmed the news that there is an oral agreement in place with the 34-year-old defender who has accepted the Flamengo deal that would keep him with the South American giant until December 2022.

David Luiz received offers from clubs in Saudi Arabia and some European countries such as France and Turkey, but none of the proposals encouraged him. The defender has been without a club since joining Arsenal in June.

After over a decade in European football, David Luiz is returning to Brazil, where he will likely end his football career. However, assume that this is the last stop.

In that case, it’s a good choice as Flamengo is hoping to win the Brasileirão for the third straight year and is currently in the Copa Libertadores semi-finals.
