Chelsea turn down a £30 million offer from Manchester City for David Luiz - report
Chelsea have turned down an offer worth £30 million from Manchester City for defender David Luiz, according to The Sun.
City manager Roberto Mancini is believed to be looking to bolster his defensive options after learning that Micah Richards will be out of action for 10 weeks due to an ankle injury.
Speculation surrounding Luiz's future at Stamford Bridge emerged when the Brazil international was left out of Chelsea's squad that defeated Reading 4-2 on Wednesday night.
Luiz, though, later clarified on Twitter that he is currently nursing a knee injury, a move which saw him fined by Chelsea, according to The Sun.
Nevertheless, the English newspaper goes on to claim that the former Benfica centre-back is still part of Blues boss Roberto Di Matteo's plans and Manchester City will need to significantly up their offer to capture his signature.
Luiz joined Chelsea in a deal worth £21 million from Benfica in January 2011.
