Chelsea are bracing themselves for a £35m bid for defender David Luiz from European Champions Bayern Munich, according to the Mirror.

The afro-haired Brazilian is a firm fan-favourite at Stamford Bridge and is seen as a potential captain of the club one day, but his future was cast in doubt following the arrival of Jose Mourinho as manager with some reports suggesting the Portuguese coach wasn’t convinced of his defensive capabilities.

Luiz saw his reputation blossom with some superb display’s for Brazil at the Confederations Cup and the Mirror claim Champions League winners Munich have joined big-spending Paris Saint Germain in showing an interest in the 26-year-old, with the German’s believed to be ready to test Chelsea’s resolve with a mammoth £35m bid.

New Bayern boss Pep Guardiola is understood to be on the look-out for someone to play alongside Dante at the back in his new-look side and it seems he’s set his sights on his Brazilian team mate, with the newspaper claiming that sporting director Matthias Sammer held talks with Luiz’s representatives while the defender was away on international duty last week.

A major stumbling block could be Mourinho’s unwillingness to do business with Guardiola, given the tense relationship the pair endured during their time in Spain, but it appears Chelsea are going to have a battle on their hands to hang on to Luiz with both Bayern and PSG keen on luring him away from Stamford Bridge this summer.

    David Luiz is a good defender and has featured in some of the most exciting competitions at Stanford bridge so i suggest Chelsea {Jose Mourinho and Roman Abrahimovic} should let him continue his career at Chelsea.

    I pray chelsea will not be tempted to make such a grave mistake of selling either juan mata or david luiz…… Pls let us learn form the issue of nemanja matic whom we sold and now one of our top wish list…… Luiz is still developing and I believe we’ve not seen his best….. Let Mourinho fine tune and get the best out of him rather than selling him….. Faith, Nigeria
