£21m Barcelona target wants showdown talks at Chelsea

Chelsea defender David Luiz wants showdown talks with Jose Mourinho amidst reports that Barcelona want to sign him.

The Daily Star claims Luiz is concerned over his future at Stamford Bridge, with speculation claiming ‘the special one’ doesn’t rate the versatile Brazilian centre back.

And, with Barca boss Tito Vilanova willing to offer £21million for the former Benfica star, his future could lie away from west London.

Mourinho is yet to take the helm at Chelsea following Rafa Benitez’s departure, but is red-hot favourite to replace the Spaniard and return to the club following his agreed early exit from Real Madrid.

His return is likely to mean a re-shuffle of the playing staff at the club, but the paper reports that Luiz is eager to remain with the Blues. His current contract runs until 2017.

Were Barcelona to get their man however, he’d join another new Brazilian at the Nou Camp after Neymar agreed to join the La Liga champions from Santos.

Luiz would also challenge Gerard Pique and the aging Carles Puyol for first team opportunities, but his priority remains Chelsea at this time.
