The Daily Mail have punters here in the Football Transfer Tavern looking up with eager eyes, after they claim that David Luiz is still on the radar of Bayern Munich.
Not only that, but the Brazilian defender could well be the first purchase that the Bavarian side use their new £90 million cash injection upon.
The club sold off a 8.33 per cent stake in their stock company, and are now as we would say, in the money.
Pep Guardiola was of course a huge fan of the player during his time at Barcelona – who are still in the race for the player – and is keen to beat his former side to the former Benfica defender this summer.
As one of our punters notes, it has not been very long since he has been back in Jose Mourinho’s starting eleven that Luiz is again being linked with the Stamford Bridge exit door.
Yet again in the recent disappointing 1-1 draw to West Bromwich Albion, Luiz made an error that cost a goal and ultimately a couple of points for the club.
By failing to deal with the ball into the box, he further showed why Mourinho puts so much trust in John Terry and Gary Cahill as his preferred central defensive pairing.
Will Luiz make a big money move to Bayern or will Chelsea keep him to warm the bench? Let us know your thoughts below.
