Chelsea star David Luiz has refused to discuss the possible interest from Barcelona after linking up for international duty with the Brazilian national team, Sky Sports reports.

The five-time world champions are lining up against Switzerland this week and one of the major talking points surrounding the squad is that of Luiz’s future.

The west London club rejected a bid for the 26-year-old last week and reports recently have suggested that a second will be imminent, but the man himself is refusing to be dragged into a debate about the speculation.

“I will only talk about the national team because this is all I can think about when I come here, that’s how I think,” Luiz is quoted by Globo Esporte.

“It was like this in Brazil during the Confederations Cup, and it will be like this here.

“You (press) can try everything, but you won’t get anything from me.”

However, his international colleague Dani Alves was of a different opinion and very vocal about the matter.

“I would be happy if David Luiz would come to Barcelona. I always want the best for my friends and advise them to join Barca if they get the chance,” Alves told El Mundo Deportivo.

“He’s not just a friend, but he has a lot of quality, too. The problem is not whether he would like to come here, but that you have to take him away from Mourinho and that will not be easy.

“Letting David Luiz join Barca will not be an option for him and even less so as it would make us stronger. It will be incredibly difficult, nearly impossible.”
