David Luiz in advanced talks with Adana Demirspor, Marseille have passed

As reported by Foot Mercato, Brazilian central defender David Luiz is now in advanced negotiations to join 1st division side Adana Demirspor in Turkey, where ex-Marseille and OGC Nice striker Mario Balotelli recently signed.

The 34-year-old had been in talks to join OM, and met with Marseille boss Jorge Sampaoli in Brazil during the off-season, but President Longoria opted to pass on serious negotiations owing to the ex-Arsenal man’s wage demands.

Luiz has a 2-year agreement in principle with the Turkish side.

The Turkish side are also in negotiations to sign Le Havre left-back Umut Meras.
