Man United Set to Make Astonishing £30m Bid for Chelsea Defender David Luiz

Old Trafford side have made ‘secret’ approaches for Stamford Bridge star.

Check in to Transfer Window: Done Deal Alerts

Man United are reportedly preparing a big money move for Chelsea defender David Luiz with Old Trafford boss David Moyes having already made secret approaches for the Brazilian according to the Daily Mirror.

Moyes has made his interest in the Brazilian international a priority and hopes to make an offer that tempts the West London club into selling Luiz before the transfer window slams shut on Monday evening.

Blues boss Jose Mourinho is said to have his doubts about the former Benfica man and Man United are keen to make the most of that uncertainty with an offer of £30m for the Chelsea fan favourite.

Moyes will look to play on any doubts Luiz could have about his standing in Mourinho’s plans as he looks to strengthen his defence, knowing that his first choice central defensive pairing of Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic have their fair share of injury concerns, not to mention both players clearly being in the latter stages of their careers.

Alternatively Moyes may actually see Luiz as a player he can use in a defensive midfield role, one that the Chelsea man has excelled in when called upon.

David Luiz has on occasion shown a lack of maturity at the back but is still undoubtedly a player with a great deal of talent.

The 26 year old moved to Stamford Bridge in January 2011 and has helped the club to Champions League, Europa League and FA Cup titles over the past two and a half years, making 109 appearances and scoring 12 goals in the process.

Jose Mourinho has not been able to use Luiz this season due to a hamstring injury but has seen his defence manage well without his presence, which could perhaps leave him open to the prospect of selling the player.
