Chelsea’s David Luiz and Spurs Jan Vertonghen on Barcelona list to replace Carles Puyol [Mundo Deportivo]
- March 7, 2014
Barcelona will undoubtedly be signing a new centre back this summer, especially after captain Carles Puyol announced he would be leaving the club.
According to Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo, Chelsea’s David Luiz heads the list with Borussia Dortmund’s Mats Hummels and Tottenham’s Jan Vertonghen also considered possible candidates.
David Luiz has not been a regular starter at Chelsea under Jose Mourinho and would be open to a move to Barcelona.
Jan Vertonghen recently hinted he may have to look elsewhere if Tottenham don’t get top 4 and Barcelona could be the ideal move for the Belgian star.
