Di Matteo calm over Luiz

Next Story

Roberto Di Matteo has declared Chelsea are too big a club to be bullied by Barcelona into selling David Luiz.

The Spanish giants are reported to be interested in Luiz, allocating up to £30million to sign the Brazil centre-back who returns from a knee injury for Saturday's Barclays Premier clash with Newcastle.

But unlike Arsenal, who have seen Cesc Fabregas and Alex Song depart for the Nou Camp in the last year, Di Matteo insists his European champions have nothing to fear. The Italian said: "Luiz is part of our future. It's normal that he'll get interest because he's a Brazilian international centre back."
