Benfica planning surprise move for €25m-rated Blues centre-back

Benfica eager to sign Chelsea centre-back David Luiz and planning to make a bid during this winter transfer window. Eagles need a new high-class defender to improve the back-line and Brazil international is the best choice in this situation. He started this campaign amazingly and proved his greatness one more time. Bruno Lage will do everything to add him during this January.

Napoli also keen to sign him and there will be a real battle for the footballer. His price could increase and become much more. Luiz joined the London club from Benfica in 2011 with a £23m deal. He is one of the best centre-backs in Premier League and unchanged figure for the club. In this season, David already played 25 matches, scored one goal and made one assist in all competition.

This is an excellent result and he can improve his consequences during this campaign. Brazilian defender is contracted with the club until 2019 and his release clause is around £30m. He was a regular member of the national team and also played in 2014 Mundial which is already a big success for the player. Portuguese club ready to pay big money for the player during this winter.
