TRANSFER NEWS: Chelsea Boss Keen To Replace David Luiz

By on July 4, 2011

Andre Villa-Boas would have no problems selling Brazilian defender David Luiz, according to reports.

The new Chelsea boss would loss no sleep selling the 24-year old who only arrived at Stamford Bridge in January from Benfica. Despite the club paying around £23million for the defender just six months ago, Villa-Boas wants a British defender who can command both boxes.

The News of the World reports that Villa-Boas isn’t convinced by Luiz and could leave this summer to pave way for Birmingham’s Scott Dann, Bolton’s Gary Cahill or Everton’s Jack Rodwell.

The only Chelsea centre half who isn’t at risk of being sold is club captain John Terry. Barcelona have been linked with the former Benfica defender who has been identified as a long term replacement for Barca legend Carlos Puyol.

Puyol now 33 is thought to be in his last few years as a Catalan and reports suggest he could retire as soon as next summer.

    is impossible because right now we have a very good defense J.Terry D.Luis and Alex are a good defenders, all we need in our club right now is Winger, Creative Midfielder and a strong striker like S.Aguero who make attacking force. Pep is Aggressive Defender he always commit Big Offence that lead to Red Card and course Penalty i watch all the game he played last season. he is the reason while Marid Didn’t make it in CL Against Barca. so we don’t need player like him. let it not be because he is a fellow Portuguese that make AVB to buy him. it wont work. we have good defenders if we need more we will just table our bid to bolton and get Cahil he is the next J.Terry replacement David has replace R.Calvaho. I LOVE BLUE THE BEST COLOR. Chelsea For LIVE.

    Pliz Mr. Villas,dont sell Luis.Furthermore I don’t fancy Pepe being any better player than David,in fact Pep might end up being a liability.As for Gary or Dann,we can just table a bid for one of them just for convenience sake so that when JT probably retires,we might have available his replacement.Let’s go for midfielders. That’s what we need.TRUE BLUE!!

    anyone who commented that is actually worried Chelsea might sell Luiz is an IDIOT. He was signed for £23 million as the future of our defence. oh ok yeah lets sell him 6 months later after he played amazing and lifted the whole club. AVB is a GENIUS and would not sell one of our BEST PLAYERS. DUHHHHH
