The deterioration in the relationship between Antonio Conte and David Luiz could be set to come to a head ahead of the January transfer window.

That’s according to the Daily Mail, who believe that Luiz’s days as a Chelsea player are now numbered following a fall out with his manager.

Luiz Red Card
Not all has gone to plan for Chelsea centre-back David Luiz so far this campaign.

The report claims that our 3-0 defeat at the hands of AS Roma was the beginning of the end for Luiz at Stamford Bridge. The Brazilian was diabolically bad as the Premier League champions rolled over in Rome.

Andreas Christensen has occupied the starting spot in the middle of the back three ever since, which has inevitably casted doubt over the future of Luiz in SW6.

Andreas Christensen’s stellar performances for Chelsea this term have ousted David Luiz.

Luiz was phenomenal for Chelsea last season, but his performance level noticeably dropped at the beginning of the current campaign and he has suffered the consequences.

The Daily Mail believe that both Juventus and Real Madrid are in the running to sign Luiz. He will likely have no problem finding another top club to play for should Conte look to get rid this winter.
