Barcelona still keen on Luiz

Published 1 Comments

Barcelona have hinted that they will move again for Chelsea defender David Luiz in the January transfer window.

Blaugrana president Sandro Rossell revealed that the club did not recruit the Brazilian because of technical reasons, and that they would never pay more than the manager believes is the right price.

However, Rossell also refused to close the door on another move for the player, admitting we’ll ‘see what happens’ in the New Year.

"Barcelona should not pay more than what the coach thinks is the right price for the salary. We did not recruit David Luiz because of a technical decision,” he told TV3.

"But we will see what happens in January."

The Daily Star goes on to report that Bayern Munich were also interested in signing Luiz during the summer transfer window, and that the resolve of Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho may well be tested once again in 2014.

Luiz joined the Blues back in 2011, moving to Stamford Bridge after four-years with Portuguese giants Benfica.

His time in west London appeared to be coming to an end this summer, with Barcelona tabling a £35million bid to bring the player to the Nou Camp, according to the BBC.

However, the 26-year-old snubbed the chance to move to Catalonia, and instead opted to stay at Chelsea. He may well have to make another decision in January.
