The Daily Mirror have Chelsea fans looking up from their pints here in the Football Transfer Tavern.
The publication have claimed that the Blues are willing to offer David Luiz to Bayern Munich – for one of their forwards plus some cash.
Jose Mourinho is determined to bring in another forward and his feelings on David Luiz have been well documented since his return to the club last summer.
Should Bayern Munich be willing to offer not only £15 million but also send Mario Mandzukic to West London, they will have a deal according to our landlord.
He notes over pouring another round of pints that the deal could be fairly beneficial for both Chelsea and Bayern, who certainly need something in their defence after Real Madrid cut through them like butter.
Both players are 27 so age does not really come into the swap deal. Chelsea are fully aware that they have to stay on the right side of the Financial Fair Play regulations, meaning that this deal could be perfect for them and their summer recruitment drive.
Chelsea fans. Has David Luiz played his last game at Stamford Bridge and is Mandzukic a striker you would like to see arriving in SW6? Let us know your thoughts below.
