David Luiz's Move to Chelsea Aborted

David Luiz

Benfica has refused to lower David Luiz's €25m price tag, however Chelsea are reluctant to meet the cost and all talks have now been aborted.

Both Manchester City and Chelsea has been interested in David Luiz for awhile. Luiz has been targeted by Chelsea manager Roberto Mancini who wanted Luiz signed quickly. The reported original £35m asking fee is extraordinary.

Reportedly, Luiz has been tipped as the star of the next decade.

At this point, defender Luiz is set to remain with Benefica after talks between the Portuguese champions and Chelsea broke down today.

Luiz has been included in Benfica's squad against Rio Ave in tonight's Portuguese Cup tie and is set to start the match as well. The Brazil international was omitted from the squad for Saturday's league win against Nacional.
