Barcelona target Chelsea’s David Luiz in £25million deal, Catalans convinced transfer ban will be lifted [Mirror]

Bet on Chelsea v Atletico Madrid in the Champions League

Barcelona seemed pretty unruffled by their FIFA-imposed transfer ban, convinced it will be lifted in good time for the summer transfer window, or at least be given a temporary allowance.

The Mirror maintain that a deal to bring in Monchengladbach keeper Ter Stegen is all but done, while their prime defensive target is Chelsea’s David Luiz, for whom they’re preparing a £25million move.

With Luiz in and out of the Chelsea team and seemingly incapable of fully convincing Mourinho that he can be relied upon, Chelsea may well be willing to play ball for such a fee.
