The self-styled Special One has already decided that his shaggy-haired Brazil international is now surplus to requirements going forward at Stamford Bridge, and as such Luiz has been made available to buy for £30m when the summer transfer window does reopen for business.
However, the west London club are now hoping to be able to persuade the Bundesliga champions to part company with their highly rated Croatia international in exchange for their own versatile defender and £15m as well.
Mandzukic, who was interestingly left out of the Bavarian giants’ squad for this weekend’s German Cup final against arch-rivals Borussia Dortmund in Berlin, is understood to be unhappy at the imminent arrival of Poland international Robert Lewandowski at the Allianz Arena next season and so is understood to be giving serious thought to his future at Bayern.
And with Luiz now certain to be leaving the Blues, it appears that a swap deal involving both these two stars could now be on the cards.
