David Luiz was tight-lipped over the offer from Barcelona and his Chelsea future.

The player is currently at FC Basel’s training facilities with the Brazilian national team ahead of their friendly against Switzerland.

When asked about the reported offer, Luiz said: "I will only talk about the national team because this is all I can think about when I come here, that's how I think.

"It was like this in Brazil during the Confederations Cup, and it will be like this here. You (press) can try everything, but you won't get anything from me."

The questions came after Barcelona reportedly lodged a bid believed to be in the region of £35 million for the talismanic defender. 

Luiz joined Chelsea in 2011 and has gone on to become a fan favourite. The club were quick to reject the bid as Luiz is viewed as a vital player at the club and future captain.

Potential Barcelona teammate Dani Alves was unsurprisingly less cagey when asked about the matter.

"I would be happy if David Luiz would come to Barcelona. 

"I always want the best for my friends and advise them to join Barca if they get the chance," Alves told El Mundo Deportivo.

"He's not just a friend, but he has a lot of quality, too. The problem is not whether he would like to come here, but that you have to take him away from Mourinho and that will not be easy.

"Letting David Luiz join Barca will not be an option for him and even less so as it would make us stronger. 

"It will be incredibly difficult, nearly impossible."

The last comment will be met with mixed reviews from the Chelsea fans as it would appear from Alves' comments that Luiz may be keen on a move to Barcelona.

That said, the right-back is clearly under no illusions and knows the deal is very, very unlikely to happen.
