The precarious situation surrounding David Luiz at Stamford Bridge could be set to come to a head as we approach the winter transfer window.
The Brazilian is one of the most iconic players ever to pull on a Chelsea shirt. His fuzzy hair, THAT penalty in Munich, and countless heroic performances. A club legend? Perhaps not, but his name is firmly etched into the club’s hall of fame.
Antonio Conte, though, is a man who has no time for romance. He wants one thing – results. Hence Luiz’s exile to the substitutes bench and Andreas Christensen being tasked with plugging the hole.
It seems unlikely that Luiz will accept a bit-part role in West London while in his prime years. RMC Sport believe he may already be on the lookout for an exit route…
David Luiz… Galactico?
Stranger things have happened. RMC Sport claim that Luiz is interested in signing for European champions Real Madrid.
The report claims that discussions are already underway between Luiz and Los Blancos over a move as soon as the January transfer window.
This would be a real tear jerker for the Chelsea faithful, let’s hope he can force his way back into Conte’s thinking.
