We at the Football Transfer Tavern are saddened by news that David Luiz may be leaving the Premier League with big spending Paris Saint-Germain hoping to sign the Chelsea defender this summer according to the Daily Mirror.
The 26-year-old defender was used in a number of positions by interim boss Rafael Benitez last season but Mourinho doesn’t see Luiz as a midfielder in the way that Benitez did.
Mega rich PSG are desperate for Luiz to partner Thiago Silva in their back line and are willing to spend a huge amount of cash to keep on top of Monaco who have already spent well in excess of £100 million this summer.
Incoming Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is happy to allow the Brazilian to leave Stamford Bridge if the fee is right and as long as he can have the funds to strengthen and build his own side once again in West London.
The former Real Madrid and Inter Milan boss is planning a spending spree this summer and could use the £30 million rated Luiz as a bargaining tool with either PSG or Barcelona this summer.
