Chelsea fans are not looking too happy here in the Football Transfer Tavern and Metro is about to make it worse.
The Blues are reeling from the news that their goalkeeper Petr Cech will be out for the rest of the season and now after hearing that David Luiz’s proposed move to Barcelona is moving closer, they are looking outright worried.
Barcelona were under a transfer embargo – but as we predicted, the ban has been suspended for the summer in order for the Catalan giants to strengthen.
This of course means that their number one target David Luiz is back on their radar, and the club are thought to be moving closer to a £25 million agreement for the Brazilian international.
Our resident Chelsea fans in the tavern know that Luiz is never going to be a Mourinho favourite, but the fact remains, Luiz is versatile and certainly gets in the team when the biggest games roll around.
Chelsea fans also know that they need to raise cash this summer in order to buy two world class forwards, and the money they get from Luiz can go a long way to doing that.
Is it simply a matter of when and not if in regards to Luiz linking up with Gerardo Martino’s side this summer? Let us know your thoughts below.
