Chelsea face fight to keep Luiz from Barcelona

David Luiz is having a fantastic season for Chelsea. He scored yet another stunning goal against Basel on Thursday and is becoming increasingly influential to the team and the club, being mentioned as the man who will take the captain’s armband from John Terry one day. So we certainly don’t want to sell the 26-year old, but it appears that Barcelona have targeted Luiz as one of the signings they want to make this summer.

The Catalan club are planning big changes at the end of the season after they struggled in the Champions League this season. The defence is really creaking at the Nou Camp, as was highlighted by a 7-0 aggregate thrashing at the hands of the German champions Bayern Munich. That followed struggles against PSG and AC Milan, so they have compiled a wish list of top class players they would like and, according to the Mail, Luiz is near the top because of his versatility and talent.

Luiz will still have four years left on his Chelsea contract when the season ends, so Chelsea are under no pressure to sell. The Mail reports that his price is likely to be around £40 million, but that may not discourage the Catalan club, as they are planning to offload a number of their own stars to shake things up a bit. The one thing that could make things difficult for Chelsea is if Luiz really wants to go, but he is apparently happy at the club and in London, so hopefully he will stay.

    Don’t go there,Luiz is not for sale. He is set to be the captain someday and has a big role to play at the stanford bridge club.

    What utter rubbish, are we Arsenal? No player leaves unless WE want them to. This is simply the Press at work. Why don’t they try for Mata and Hazard as well.

    Big thanks to all the cfc players board and every souls called by the name of the club. Well done. I begin with the interiim boss R.Benitez who started awkwardly but now seems there’s something to write about him. As for Mourinho, I think chelsea don’t need a manager like him though once was before, but due to callibre kind of players present at chelsea I know mourinho would not be please with their strenght. He will complain of one or the other about their style of play. Luis, Oscar, Mata, Ceasar, Hazard, Cahil, Ivanovic and bertrand, among these eight, non of them is for sale but for stay. As for Torres I think if he sees a striker who is doing better than him, his scoring spirit will be provoke.

    Chelsea should forget about Mourinho if really the club wants the present players at chelsea to be happy. I say this because “the special one” would never believe in a like Oscar for example. He strongly believed in stubborn and rugged players. Blues forever…
