Chelsea defender David Luiz will cost interested parties – including Barcelona - £35million, according to reports.

The Daily Mail claims Blues boss Jose Mourinho wants to keep the Brazilian international on the books in west London, but will part with the player for the right price.

Both Barca and Bayern Munich are interested in the player, the report claims, but will have to pay a high price to lure the player away from Stamford Bridge.

Luiz has been a big hit with the Chelsea fans since his arrival in 2011, although his erratic defending has occasionally led to questions over his suitability to Premier League football.

That said, the 26-year-old has featured regularly for a number of different managers, and offers the Blues some versatility with his ability to play in a holding midfield position as well as at centre back.

And, he’s managed to get his hands on trophies too, lifting an FA Cup, Champions League and Europa League in his first two-and-a-half seasons at Chelsea.

In Spain, Gerardo Martino is having difficulties at the back in Catalonia, with the advancing years of Gerard Pique and injuries to others keeping Barcelona on their toes at the top of the La Liga table.

Luiz would certainly provide the Barca chief with another much-needed option, as well as the ability to chip in with some important goals from defence.

They now know the price required to bring the player to the Nou Camp, but could face competition from old boss Pep Guardiola if things get serious later this month.
