Brazil defender David Luiz has revealed that he joined Paris Saint-Germain in the summer because they showed more interest in him more than Barcelona did at the time.

The former Chelsea player signed for PSG in a staggering fee worth €50 million,although Barcelona were believed to have been in for him.

"It's true that Barcelona were in touch a few times and things were looking good," the Brazil international told AS.

"But in the end, I realised that PSG were the club that wanted me more and they eventually signed me."

Luiz will be coming up against Barcelona in their UEFA Champions League game at the Parc De Princes on Tuesday and he has singled out Neymar and Lionel Messi as the players with the threat.

"I'm not surprised by what Neymar is doing. He has some unusual qualities and is a real phenomenon.

"Messi is another genius. He is a player unlike any other.

"But Barcelona have some more great players apart from Messi and Neymar. They have a very strong team, which allows them to play the football they play."
