Liverpool, Manchester City and Paris St-Germain aces made the journey on a private jet costing £120,000 to ensure they were back for their clubs as soon as possible.

But with Chelsea playing Middlesbrough on Sunday in the Premier League, Blues officials didn’t think it was necessary, according to the Daily Mail.

Luiz was not impressed posting a video on Instagram rolling his eyes with the caption: “Too many flights…”

City also paid for their Argentine contingent to come back to the Etihad promptly after facing Colombia.

Liverpool, PSG and City will split the cost of the private jet which completed the 6,250-mile journey but Chelsea declined the offer to be involved.

Arsenal left the decision of private or commercial flights in the hands of their South American duo Alexis Sanchez and David Ospina.

A Gunners source told the Daily Mail: “Some of the players actually prefer flying on commercial planes as they feel like there is more room.”
