David Luiz has options to move on quickly

A number of Europe’s top clubs have already told Chelsea they will take David Luiz off their hands in January, if they want him out the door.

Chelsea’s Brazilian ace was surprisingly dropped for their win over Manchester United, after a reported training ground spat with head coach Antonio Conte.

And although Luiz does look set to be given the chance to battle for his place, he is now being linked with moves away in January.

Sources close to Chelsea believe that the 30-year-old could be allowed to leave inn January – although at the moment Conte is happy for him to stay and it remains to be seen if Luiz would want out.

His former club Paris Saint Germain, Real Madrid and both Milan clubs – AC and Inter, have already made it known that they would be willing to take Luiz on loan, if Chelsea were looking for such a deal.

Should Luiz is not back in the first-team by the New Year, then an exit in January could very well be on the cards.

Bookmakers believe Luiz could be on the move and PaddyPower price him at 5/6 to be leaving in January.

PaddyPower said: “Luiz just can’t keep possession. First, of the ball, and now of his place in the Chelsea team. That’s not ideal for a Brazilian in World Cup year, and I don’t think this Simpsons character lookalike will want to be a sideshow.”
