David Luiz agrees to 1-year contract extension with Arsenal

LONDON (AP) — Arsenal defender David Luiz has agreed to a contract extension for the 2020-21 season. The 33-year-old Brazil center back joined Arsenal on a one-year contract from Chelsea last year. Luiz took the blame for a 3-0 loss to Manchester City on June 17 when the Premier League resumed following the coronavirus stoppage. He gave away a penalty for taking down Riyad Mahrez and was sent off for it. Arsenal says defenders Pablo Mari and Cedric Soares have agreed to long-term contracts and midfielder Dani Ceballos has extended his loan from Real Madrid until the end of this season.
