PSG join €40m fight for Chelsea star

Published 18 Comments

Paris Saint-Germain are considering a bid for Chelsea defender David Luiz, according to reports.

The Daily Telegraph claims the Ligue 1 champions have targeted the Brazilian as a replacement for compatriot Alex at the Parc des Princes.

Barcelona have also been linked with a move for the 26-year-old, and whilst Luiz is happy with life in west London, a bid from either club could test the situation at Stamford Bridge.

The paper goes on to report that Chelsea would consider selling the versatile centre back, but only for a fee in the region of €40million as new manager Jose Mourinho looks to re-shape his squad.

‘The Special One’ does not want to force Luiz out of the Blues squad, according to the report, but recognises that signings could be made with the funds from the sale.

Luiz only joined Chelsea back in January 2011, moving from Benfica on deadline day.

A firm fans’ favourite on the terraces, Luiz has impressed this season in both the heart of defence and in defensive midfield after initial criticism following his move from Portugal.

But, Chelsea aren’t short of centre backs if the player does leave, with John Terry, Gary Cahill and Branislav Ivanovic all vying for first team chances at the club.
