Chelsea have revived their interest in Benfica’s Brazil defender David Luiz.
The Premier League champions are considering a £20m bid for the highly-rated 23-year-old, which would involve Portugal full back Paulo Ferreira moving to Lisbon. (Daily Mail)
Up to know it has seemed that Benfica were pricing David Luiz out of a move away from the Stadium of Light but the centre back appears keen to force a move away from the Lisbon side and perhaps the addition of veteran Chelsea defender will help make a deal more palatable for Portuguese champions.
Ferriera is beginning to look out of his depth at Stamford Bridge and whilst he is clearly only a bit part player he has made some errors when called upon this term. The 31 year old former Porto man may be keen on a return to his native Portugal although one wonders if a move to his former club’s arch rivals would be a good idea?
Brazilian international David Luiz could help offer Carlo Ancelotti more solidity at the back and at 23 years of age would also help to reverse the ageing nature of the West London club.
