Luiz Coy On Barca Speculation

Chelsea star, David Luiz, concedes that there was some truth to the old rumour that Barcelona coveted his services.

The 26-year-old Brazilian international enjoyed a stellar season for Chelsea, stepping out from his central-defensive background into a more forward-thinking midfield role.

He certainly has the qualities Barcelona admire in a player, and because they are desperately in need of top-quality defensive reinforcements, the Blaugrana have once again been linked to Luiz.

And while he admits that he appreciates the way Barca play, he has not heard whether or not the current rumours of the Catalan club’s interest are genuine or not.

"My objective is to be happy and this is possible playing always in a team that controls the ball,” Luiz said, according to the Daily Star.

"Barcelona is the team that has developed the best football in the last few years.

"I know Barca were interested in my services in the past but now I do not have any news."
