Chelsea willing to let David Luiz join Barcelona in January [Daily Star]

According to reports emerging from Chelsea, relayed by the Daily Star, the London club could be willing to cash in on David Luiz as soon as this January, with Barcelona keen on acquiring the Brazilian.

What with Jose  Mourinho clearly preferring John Terry and Gary Cahill as his ideal central defensive pairing – Luiz has made just 5 Premier League appearances so far this season – the word is that Chelsea would be prepared to sell in the event of a decent bid from the Catalans.

Barcelona are long-term admirers, and having failed to bring in any defensive cover for their threadbare defence in the summer, David Luiz is believed to now be their number 1 realistic target for January.
