5 possible destinations for David Luiz
The Sun reports that Chelsea’s star defender has fallen out with manager Antonio Conte and, despite the Italian insisting that everything is fine, Luiz very rarely features in the manager's side.
Despite reinventing the role of the sweeper and helping the Blues win the Premier League title last season, the Brazilian has fallen way down the pecking order and is struggling for game time.
Luiz is amongst a rare breed of defenders in the Premier League. He is very comfortable in possession and can drive forward with purpose. With excellent dead ball skills and laser-sharp long-range passing, he can be a weapon for any side.
As Luiz' time at Stamford Bridge is seemingly coming to an end, we take a look at 5 clubs, where he could potentially end up at.
Since the departure of Leonardo Bonucci, the Bianconeri have lacked a strong defender who can play out of defence. With Barzagli turning 37 this year and Allegri's lack of faith in Daniele Rugani, the Brazilian defender could inject some much-needed artillery in their defense.
According to the Daily Mail, Juventus are looking to add Luiz to reinforce their back line to ensure that Napoli does not surge too far ahead in the title race. With Luiz playing in the center, Allegri could switch to his favored three-at-the-back system and bench Lichtsteiner, who has proven to be a defensive liability.
With Alex Sandro looking to go in the other direction, this deal makes sense not only from a footballing perspective but also from a financial point of view.
