David Luiz still regards Angel di Maria as one of the best footballers on the planet and is looking forward to playing alongside him once he completes his transfer from Manchester United to Paris St Germain.
Luiz believes Di Maria is still one of the best footballers in the world and that is why he is looking forward to playing alongside his former Benfica team-mate again.
Speaking after PSG's 2-0 over United in Chicago, Luiz said:
Di Maria would make us stronger, for sure. I hope to see him (at PSG). He is a great friend, a great player, and every single team he plays in, he makes the difference.
He helps on the defensive side, he knows how to assist, and to score goals. It was great to play with him then and it's great to see how much he has improved, and how he has become a fantastic player. It would be a pleasure to play with him again.

Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has offered Thomas Muller a job for life at the record German champions.
Muller has been linked with a move to Manchester United but Rummenigge does not expect the Germany international ever to want to leave the Bavarian club and has therefore offered him a position after he hangs up his boots.
"I get the feeling that Thomas will never leave FC Bayern," Rummenigge told Sport Bild magazine.
"And when Thomas does call it a day, we would also like to keep him as part of the club."
There had been fears that Muller might follow Bastian Schweinsteiger to United for a reported 100 million euro, but Rummenigge said last week that he is not entertaining that idea, adding that the 25-year-old is priceless.

Man United manager Louis van Gaal will not break his promise to retire in 2017, even if he is offered a huge contract by a wealthy Qatari club.
Van Gaal has been a big hit with United fans since he was appointed manager last summer.
The Dutchman has restored an air of grandeur at the club since his arrival and after a successful first year in charge, United are now back in the Champions League.
Van Gaal is enjoying his time in Manchester, but the 63-year-old has promised his wife Truus that this will be his last job in management and he intends to stick to his word.
The United manager said:
I will give it (football) up (in 2017). I promised that to my wife. We have not many years together any more. That is the reason.
I have to admit I have said to her, when I met her and after our relationship seemed to be very good, that at 55 I shall quit. I am still working and next week I am 64.
