Chelsea defender David Luiz proud to be linked with Barcelona
Chelsea defender David Luiz has revealed that he is proud to be linked with a move to Barcelona.
Luiz, 25, who moved to Chelsea in January 2011 from Benfica and won the Champions League with the Stamford Bridge club last season, acknowledged that he was happy to be linked with such a great club.
"Of course I'm happy with the interest of a club like Barcelona. I'm a winner and it is a cause for joy," Portuguese newspaper A Bola quote Luiz as saying.
"I will continue to do my job as best I can wherever I am and now I'm at Chelsea."
Barcelona are said to be looking at a number of top class players to sign this summer as they look to refresh their squad with younger players as the likes of Xavi and Carlos Puyol are heading towards their mid-to-late thirties.
However, it is unlikely Chelsea will be willing to part with Luiz who is seen as they natural successor to John Terry as the Blues defensive leader.
