Barca make it Chelsea defender or nobody

The Spanish press are reporting that Barcelona are determined to sign Chelsea defender David Luiz, and have claimed that it’s either him or nobody.

Reports suggest that Luiz is keen to make the move, particularly since countryman Neymar made the move to the Nou Camp earlier this summer. At Barcelona he would be used more regularly in the centre of defence, whilst he would be competing with Jose Mourinho favourite, John Terry, as well as Gary Cahill and Branislav Ivanovic. With the World Cup being hosted in Rio at the end of this season, Luiz believes he stands a better chance of partnering Thiago Silva in Luiz Felipe Scolari’s Brazil team if he’s at Barca.

Chelsea are apparently asking €40m for the player but the Catalan club’s improved offer is a bit short of that, €35m. Now the defender’s agent is expected to rock the boat in an attempt to push through the deal.
