Football teams that could sign David Luiz from Chelsea

5) AS Monaco

The Brazilian enjoyed a fruitful time with PSG during his three years in French football. While a move to Monaco would come as a shock to many, but in retrospect, could do wonders for the defender. Monaco for all their attacking prowess have had a torrid time defending with the likes of Glik and Jemerson always prone to making errors. Luiz would definitely stabilise that defence; while also bring his Ball playing skills allowing the principality club to build from the back. No other club could offer the undisputed stardom Luiz would potentially enjoy at Monaco thus the move could prove an astute decision.

4) Liverpool

Jurgen Klopp’s side are amongst the league’s top scorers with the famous fab4 regularly slicing opposition defence. While the attacking part is probably as good as it gets, the defensive side of the club is nothing less than a horrible. The likes of Lovren have had a debacle this campaign, and it remains a mystery as to how Lovren still manages to start every game for the club. The club’s inability to bring in the likes of Van Dijk will potentially cost them a league title. However, with still more than half of the campaign to go, Liverpool could certainly use a David Luiz on their side. The Brazilian is much more experienced and will certainly be an upgradation to what the Reds already have at their disposal, moreover, he would not need any time to settle having played in the league for nearly five years now.

3) Paris Saint Germain

A return to Paris would be something of a merry go round for the Brazilian defender after having already returned to Chelsea via PSG. However, in reality, Luiz could certainly prove a major signing with the French club struggling for defensive solidity, with their flaws evident in a thrashing to Bayern. The likes of Marquinhos have yet to establish themselves while Silva continues to grapple with injuries. Luiz, much more developed, could now provide the stability and reunite the dressing room which looks in shatters under Unai Emery at the moment.

2) Juventus

It was only after Chelsea’s bid for Leonardo Bonucci had been rebuffed by the Bianconeri that Conte gave the green light for Luiz’s signing. Given the two players’ same playing style, it will only be logical that Juve decide to replace the now departed Italian with David Luiz. Ever since Bonucci’s departure, Juve had to resort to playing with a back four while their passing game has also significantly taken a hit without Bonucci’s long balls. Luiz would bring back the option of playing with a back three, which unarguably is Max Allegri’s preference and also a system which brought out the best of David Luiz last season.

1) Manchester City

Probably a dream destination for every player in the world at the moment, Luiz too would be keen on a move to blue half of Manchester if he were to be sold by Chelsea in the winter. Luiz’s playing style would provide the final piece of jigsaw, allowing Guardiola to use his preferred back three system. Luiz’s playing style had Guardiola’s attention before he signed with PSG; therefore could finally reunite with the Spaniard.
