Chelsea defender hints at move

Chelsea defender David Luiz has given his biggest hint yet about his future at the club.

The Brazilian has been consistently linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge and reports have stated that a number of big name clubs may attempt to snap him up.

Barcelona are thought to be the frontrunners in the race for the big centre back and could be ready to table a bid.


Luiz raised huge speculation over his future at the London club when he refused to answer any questions about it.

The Sun reports that Luiz had said: “I really don’t want to talk about my future. At the moment I am only thinking about the national team.”

The Brazilian international represented his nation in the game against England and has another friendly game against France before the Confederations Cup later this summer.

Luiz was also asked if he was looking forward to working with the man who is widely expected to take over as manager at Chelsea, Jose Mourinho.

To which he replied: “I don’t want to answer that question.”

The player’s refusal to fully answer any question regarding his future may mean he is already on his way out of the club.

Luiz arrived at Chelsea in 2011 and has been a regular in the first team ever since, making 62 appearances and scoring six times.

    Chelsea are favourites for next season. Mourinho’s timing is perfect, and he knows it. The team added young talent last summer and they have had a season to play in. Now a world class striker will come too. Barcelona are not what they were. The Spanish league is in decline and the Premier league is strengthening.
    Mourinho is not against Luiz; that is media hype. Writers say Luiz is not a
    Mourinho style player, but there is no such thing as a Mourinho style player.
    Jose is experienced; he will build around the team’s present strengths, and
    Luiz is one of Chelsea’s big ones. He has transformed; already many fans are
    saying he is the EPL’s best central defender; and he is tipped to be Chelsea’s captain. It would be really strange for Luiz to move to Barca at this time. I think Jose and David will work well together.

    62 appearances? Are you talking about the just concluded season only? Luiz scored 7goals in 2012/13 season alone! he has made over a hundred appearances for Chelsea and has scored over 15goals in two-and-half seasons.
