The versatile Brazil star, 26, had been linked with a shock exit, but Mourinho is adamant the player is in his Stamford Bridge plans.
Mourinho said: ‘No chance he is going to leave. He is a player we want to keep. He is a player with four years (on his) contract, he just signed a contract last year.
‘We like him. He is an important player and the club is not ready to sell him for any price.’
‘I don’t know if he said that. What I can say is that he is not going to.
‘The last quotes I read were Luiz saying he is not speaking about clubs when he is with the national team, which is a fantastic quote that I appreciate. That is the last quote I have and it is an intelligent one.’

David Luiz said that he will only concentrate on his national team while he is there and refused to answer any questions asked of him by the media about a departure from Stamford Bridge.
