Bayern Munich to rival Barcelona for Chelsea star's signature

Pep Guardiola is ready to rival Barcelona for the signature of Chelsea defender David Luiz, after Bayern Munich received a cash injection of £90million, reports the Daily Mail.

The Bundesliga giants have sold off an 8.33 per cent stake in their stock company, which will allow them to pay off their remaining stadium debts, freeing up more money for a player recruitment drive at the Allianz Arena this summer.

Luiz has been identified by Guardiola as a possible target, having been impressed with the Brazil international's performances at Stamford Bridge this season.

Jose Mourinho has opted to play the unconventional centre-back in a more advanced defensive midfield position, a role in which the Chelsea star has seemingly excelled.

Barcelona have also been mooted as admirers of the 26-year-old, but it looks as though Tata Martino will now face competition in his attempts to lure Luiz to Camp Nou.

Bayern Munich appear equally keen to negotiate a deal for the South American schemer, and will hope that the greater financial muscle at Guardiola's disposal will be enough to convince Chelsea to sell when the transfer window reopens in June.
