TRANSFER NEWS: Chelsea Boss Keen To Replace David Luiz
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.
