Chelsea bracing themselves for Bayern Munich bid for David Luiz


Jose Mourinho’s resolve to keep central defender David Luiz at Stamford Bridge is to be tested by a £40million bid from Bayern Munich.

Pep Guardiola, the new boss at the Champions League winners, wants the Brazil international to play in the heart of his defence.

Barcelona have also been linked with the 26-year-old, who cost £21m when he was signed from Benfica two years ago.

Chelsea have stated that Luiz is not for sale but Mourinho recently admitted the centre-half, whose defensive positioning has been left wanting in the past, has flaws to his game.

The Portuguese said: ‘I like central defenders to be able to play. Again, it is a question of making the right decision. You’re free to dribble from the back when you have the right conditions. You have to measure the risk.
