360 Reactions: Should David Luiz stay or leave in the summer?

This rumour has started since last season. With the inclusion of Cahill in the squad and him starting most of the matches, much has came doubt over the future of David Luiz, who has been having limited chances this season. Let’s see how this could affect us next season.


David Luiz was signed by Chelsea back in 2011 for a reported fee of 25 million from Benefica along with Matic (who has now returned to Chelsea). His debut season went well with his debut goal against United, helping to make a comeback. In his first full season, he helped the side to win Fa Cup and the Champions League. During 2012-2013 season, we would see the inclusion of Luiz in central midfielder, something which was never tried. He would then excel at that position, constantly winning man of the match awards and fans started to prefer Luiz at CDM rather than a CB, as he likes to move forward.

In the beginning of 2013-2014 season, Jose clearly stated to the media that he would ‘Never’ try to play Luiz in CDM as he was a natural CB. He played in that position until the final match of the BPL of 2013 against Liverpool, when Jose started him for the first time in Central defensive midfield, which came to great effect, as he started the play of a lob ball to Azpilicueta, who would provide a curl ball to Oscar, to pass to Eto’o for the winning goal of the match. His performance was amazing in that match.

However in 2014, his chance have been so far limited, as the two CB combination of Terry and Cahill has been amazing, with only 2 goals conceded in the premier league so far in 2014. He has been more off the bench player and if he doesn’t get enough playing time, he could decided to hand in a transfer and be a replacement for Puyol next season at Barca. If he leaves, we would have lost a great player, who has been a key player for us for the last 2 season, excluding some lazy passes of course…

That’s that for the rumour, what do you think will happen? Feedback is appreciated.

    No doubt he is a great addition to our team since his arrival. With Cahill, Iva & also Zouma at CB, so i tink is a difficult decision for Jose. Is up to him

    STAY. His one hell of a character and he makes life interesting… Who doesn’t love the Geezer. UNLESS we can get anywhere close to the reported figures of last summer of 40 million pounds.

    Who’s better than him at cdm besides matic for us? Mikel? Noooooooooooo….luiz and matic did wonders against city and Liverpool… This combo can attack and defend… Aerially strong and can also challenge physical teams… Why sell him? Why not sell oriol romeu instead…and keep mceachran, mikel, mvg and rlc as our back up??? We’ve rami tooooo… No luiz sale non sense hereafter…

    No way not unless its for more than 40-45m. Firstly because he has many features which the other players in the same postions as him don’t have. You should never sell a player who brings something different too your sqaud. Secondly because he’s a character and a good personality to have in the dressing room. Lastly if can’t immediately think of someone similar has all what he has and more in one then really please don’t sell him Jose!

    Mourinho formulates and makes decisions so I think it is up to him if Luiz still has a future at Stamford bridge or not but he is a good player especially in the midfield and funny as well.

    This team is gradually been destroyed by jose…luiz is modern defender and shouldnt be sold jeez!!!!!!…

  8. Zyte says

    i like luiz as a cdm & also as a defender with a lot of potentials,though stil error prone.but jose should decide.if luiz wil be sold,cfc must demand 40mil at least since porto are demanding 30mil 4 mangala.

  9. Neo says

    Even if sold i dont think Jose will buy Mangala, i think Varane is more likely.

  10. Robben16 says

    Please dont.

  11. GABBY says

    See Ken too when I tlk somebody will come out with a foolish coment, u are at the top nd u saying he destroying the team, foolish. Go watch cricket, football is not ur portion.

    Jose knows his ability & z benefit & z lost to club if he wl be sold. I believe with him. To me he is a fantastic & tactician defender and no defender player is like him playing well & passing ball to attackers. If Jose can utilize his ability & change him world’s best, it is my wish…
