The Daily Star claim that Luiz is set to become a Barcelona player this summer with a £32 million switch to the Camp Nou already agreed.
Apparently a five-year deal is already agreed with the Brazilian and the move is likely to be confirmed after the completion of this summers’ World Cup tournament.
Luiz struggled to hold down a regular place this season following the return of Jose Mourinho with John Terry and Gary Cahill the preferred centre back pairing.
And it now seems that Barcelona have finally got their man having targeted the eccentric figure for the last 12 months.
I want curly hair to, shouts the landlord after overhearing the news, but the truth is he’s as bald as an egg!
Mourinho has targeted Luiz as a way to free up funds as he launches an attacking assault in the transfer window and it now seems he has £32 million to add to the pot.
Atletico Madrid’s Diego Costa is the main target on the Special One’s shopping list in a deal rumoured to be worth £50 million.
And Luiz is unlikley to be the only one on the way out with Victor Moses, Demba Ba and Fernando Torres all set for the exit door.
