Chelsea star set for Juventus move
David Luiz is set to make a move out of Stamford Bridge in January, and could be heading for Juventus, according to a report in the Daily Mail.
Luiz’s relationship with Antonio Conte has strained, especially after their side’s 3-0 loss to Roma in the Champions League a couple of months ago.
With the Luiz departure looking increasingly likely, Juventus, among other clubs, seem to be interested in roping in the Brazilian.
The 30-year-old has been identified as a potential replacement for Leonardo Bonucci, who made a move to AC Milan during summer.
Conte, on the other hand, has been non-committal about any movement, saying that injuries have been the main reason why Luiz has missed out. Yet, he divulged that he prefers playing the 21-year-old Andreas Christensen instead of the 30-year-old Luiz.
‘I don’t know. Andreas Christensen is the present and the future for Chelsea,’ he had said.
