Jose Mourinho willing to let €35m David Luiz leave in January

Published Add your comment

Barcelona are expected to move again for Chelsea ace David Luiz in the January transfer window, because Jose Mourinho doesn't want to keep him.

The Blues' defender has been on the wish-list at the Nou Camp for quite some time now, but reports are claiming in the French press that it's in at the start of the New Year when they will make their move.

Chelsea boss Mourinho is believed to be willing to condone the sale of Luiz providing it doesn't leave him in an emergency situation at the back.

The Special One has already highlighted the likes of Porto duo Nicolas Otamendi and Eliaquim Mangala and Sergio Ramos as possible options with which to bolster his backline, and so any outgoing deals could perhaps hinge on that.

Barca, who came close to purchasing the Brazilian in the summer, are keen on making a move happen to provide a long-term replacement for the ageing Carles Puyol.

And, according to Le 10 Sport- who cite Spanish publication AS- an offer of around €35million should be sufficient to tempt Chelsea into allowing Luiz to move.

With Barcelona looking healthy in regards to the other areas of their squad, one gets the feeling that the figure won't be too much of a stumbling block.
