It’s understood Luiz has accepted a contract with home country giants Flamengo until December 2022.

Flamengo tweeted: “Born in Diadema, he traveled the world and got used to winning, winning and winning, just like our anthem says.

“The people cried out, the heart shook and now he will wear red and black.

“Biggest fans in the world.

“@DavidLuiz_4 is the new player of Mengão! Welcome! #DavidLuizNoMengo.”

The 57-cap Brazil international could have joined former Arsenal team-mates Matteo Guendouzi and William Saliba at Marseille.

And he also turned down Serie A new boys Salernitana, according to French outlet Le10Sport.

Lazio, managed by ex-Chelsea chief Maurizio Sarri, were also said to be keen.

But Luiz reportedly believed that now is the right stage in his career to head back to Brazil, where he launched his career with Vitoria in 2006.
