Incoming Bayern Munich boss Pep Guardiola is set to join PSG in the race to sign Chelsea star David Luiz according to Spanish source Sport.es.

The former Barcelona manager had apparently attempting on a couple of occasions to sign the Brazilian during his time at the Nou Camp but may now feel that he has a decent chance of finally landing the 26 year old who has been strongly linked with a Stamford Bridge exit this summer.

There has been a great deal of speculation suggesting that Jose Mourinho may be willing to sell the former Benfica man, perhaps suggesting that the returning Blues boss doesn’t rate Luiz as highly as others appear to.

Luiz enjoyed a mixed time of it at the Confederations Cup but did help his side to win the tournament in his native Brazil and enjoyed a fairly successful season with Chelsea, though was noted for his poor positional play whilst frequently making fundamental errors whilst in a centre-back role, though the Blues fan favourite did impress when used in a midfield role which could perhaps be a position that better suits the Chelsea man.

David Luiz cost Chelsea a fee in the region of £22m in January 2011 and the powerful performer has racked up 109 appearances and scored 12 goals since moving to the Premier League side, helping the club to Champions League, FA Cup and Europa League triumphs in the process.
