Barcelona get serious over David Luiz!

A report in the "Sun" says that Barcelona are preparing to bid £35 million for Chelsea's David Luiz.

Bayern Munich did express interest in the 26-year-old defender but that cooled when Chelsea said they wanted around £60 million but Barcelona believe that they can do a deal for cash and players in exchange.

The "Daily Mail" said that Barcelona football director Raul Sanllehi was in London to meet with Luiz's agent Giuliano Bertolucci and that Chelsea had privately indicated a fee of nearer £40 million was needed. That would represent a substantial profit on a player signed for £21 million in 2011.

Luiz played 30 minutes of the match with Inter Milan last Thursday and has withdrawn from Wednesday's game against Real Madrid in Miami and did not train with the side on Tuesday.

He signed a new five-year deal with Chelsea last September but has been unsure of his future at the club under Jose Mourinho.
