Chelsea Fan Favourite Set For £30m La Liga Move?

Barcelona are lining up a £30m move for Chelsea defender David Luiz this summer, according to the Mirror.

Barca have had a disappointing season by their high standards, losing out on the La Liga title to Real Madrid and being knocked out of the Champions League at the semi final stages by Chelsea.

The Mirror claim the Catalans will undergo a summer of rebuilding and are keen to add a centre-back, left-back and striker to their ranks, with Luiz believed to be their No.1 central defensive target and Valencia’s Jordi Alba seen as a realistic option to replace Eric Abidal at left-back.

Luiz joined Chelsea for £24m and has endured mixed fortunes at Stamford Bridge during his 15 months in West London. The former Benfica stopper came under scrutiny from football pundits who questioned his defensive abilities, but after a difficult start under AVB, the 25-year-old has enjoyed a new lease of life under Roberto Di Matteo and has become a firm fan favourite with the Blues faithful.

However, the Mirror believe Barca are ready to test Chelsea’s resolve with a £30m bid this summer and are willing to sell Seydou Keita and Ibrahim Afellay to fund the move.

    guyz, we shldnt over estimate Luiz, 30m is a gud money 4 a gud player. However, Luiz is not a gud player, but d best. So barca, best for best. Messi for Luiz. Think about it.
