Quitting Chelsea? David Luiz opens up on the Barcelona links

David Luiz Barcelona rumours

The transfer window is over and one can safely say that David Luiz is going to be a Chelsea player at least for the next six months. Over the summer, Luiz was linked heavily with moves to Bayern Munich and Barcelona. He may not be the perfect defender in the world, but he has a multitude of qualities that makes him special. Once described as a ‘PlayStation footballer’ by Gary Neville, Luiz has grown into one of the important players of the Chelsea squad.

In an interview given to Gazeta Esportiva, Luiz said:

“There was an official offer [from Barcelona], but I decided to stay at Chelsea. I am happy to play for a big club and be in the national team to represent my country.”

David Luiz 2012-13 StatsBarcelona came in with an official £35 million offer, which would have made Luiz one of the most expensive defenders in the world. Chelsea rejected it and categorically stated that he was not for sale at any price.

John Terry, in my opinion, has only a couple of years left in him. It would not be surprising to see Terry retire at the age of 35 just as Liverpool’s Jamie Carragher did recently. Luiz is clearly the man to take over.

For his part, Luiz never came out and said that he wanted to leave Chelsea. He did, however, chose to remain silent on the issue.

Dani Alves would be greatly disappointed man after having publicly expressed his desire to see Luiz at Barcelona.
