Chelsea star close to joining Barcelona claims Spanish press


Chelsea star David Luiz is reportedly close to joining Barcelona in the summer according to Spanish daily AS Sport.

David Luiz

It is believed that Chelsea are willing to listen to offers for the 27 year old who has reportedly fallen out with manager Jose Mourinho. The Brazilian has admitted that Chelsea’s season has been an absolute failure“You can say it is a s*** season if you don’t have trophies in a season at a big club, that is true,” Luiz said.

Barcelona are desperate to strengthen their defense and according to Barcastuff twitter handle, the Blaugrana will sign a couple of centre backs in the summer and have been keeping tabs on Borussia Dortmund’s Mats Hummels and FC Basl’s Fabian Schar.

Luiz has played a bit-part role for Chelsea, featuring in just 27 games this season with Mourinho opting to field John Terry and Gary Cahill at the heart of the defense. However the defender will play a pivotal role for Luiz Felipe Scolari’s Brazilian side in the World Cup this summer.

Other reports have claimed that Barcelona have already reached an agreement with Luiz’s agent and the player will be earning €5.5m a year, however this remains a rumour.

So what do you think? Will Barcelona be finally able to sign the Brazilian in the summer?

  1. Of course they wil always be speculations,bt I dnt see luiz leaving stamford bridge,we can’t afford such luxurious mistake.Never.

  2. Its good chelsea to allow long stay players to leave, because we need money to buy strikers

    • It will be a big mistake if we let Luiz go out of chelsea.. Cox i still count him as one of our utility player that we have.

  3. I am praying he leaves chelsea,these are two of my favorite clubs and i always thing David would fit perfect with Barcelona system.Mou is an idiot he disrespect players talent and abilities too much.

    • i think he can leave cos its the right time for luiz to take tha place pique and matcherano they made mistaken to much we can not keep them.

  4. Cfc should sack jose mou.Because he don’t know how to make good use of players.imagined,how jose mou swallowed his vomits at the dying minutes of this season.stupid! joke aside i have changed my mind for jose. I predict worst or another barren season for chelsea. with jose? nothing!!!

  5. Useless jose mou.killer of players later back fired.where is lukaku? i fixed him to be number one striker in stamford bridge next season. Romas suppose picture my latest view about trophyless jose. don’t buy coasta if at all ,but you have so many good players on ground.

  6. I think the reason behind Barcelona’s deform for the past two seasons is their defence line,for me,bringing in David Luiz will help them a lot so,I advice them to go out and look for more experienced and speedy defenders.

  7. Chelsea need striker and they have many it is advisable to bring him out to Barcelona.
