Transfer Rumour: David Luiz will be included in a packaged deal to lure Nemanja Matić back to Chelsea, according to Nick Harris at HITC Sport.
Luiz has world-class potential as a box-to-box midfielder, not as a holding midfielder or centre-back, a position that he won't play under José Mourinho because the Brazilian represents everything the new Chelsea boss doesn't want from a centre-half.
Player Profile: Matić is an imposing presence in Benfica's midfield, using his 6'4" frame to his advantage and he's underrated when it comes to launching attacks.
With a chip on his shoulder, Matić has risen to the top after not making it at the Blues.
Chelsea aren't going to relinquish such a gifted (albeit inconsistent) player in Luiz, having already waited this long.
Why do you think Benfica signed Stefan Mitrović, Lazar Marković, Filip Duricić and Miralem Sulejmani?
So they can be guided by their compatriot Matić, an established first-teamer, which means he won't be going anywhere anytime soon.
Oh, and should Chelsea fork out a fortune for Matić, they better figure out how to bring his brother, Uros, along for the ride.
