David Luiz Moreira Marinho (born 22 April 1987), known as David Luiz, is a Brazilian professional footballer who plays for English club Chelsea and the Brazil national team. Primarily a central defender, he can also be deployed as a defensive midfielder.

After starting out at Vitória, he moved to Benfica, remaining with the club five seasons (three complete). He joined Chelsea in January 2011, winning the UEFA Champions League and the FA Cup in the following season. In June 2014, he transferred to Paris Saint-Germain for a fee of £50 million (€62 million), a world record transfer for a defender, and won all four domestic competitions in his first season in French football. He returned to Chelsea in August 2016 in a £30 million transfer.

David Luiz made his full international debut for Brazil in 2010 and has since earned over 50 caps. He was a member of the Brazilian teams which won the 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup and reached the semi-finals of the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
