Chelsea morning news: Mourinho reportedly ready to axe £17m star

David Luiz

A round up of news stories this morning about Chelsea.

The Mirror has claimed Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is ready to listen to offers for centre back David Luiz.

Luis has been periodically linked with moves away from Stamford Bridge, with the club having already rejected an approach from Barcelona.

The Blues spent £25 million on the Brazilian when they signed him in 2011.

Luiz may not be the only player to possibly leave the club this summer.

The Evening Standard claims that up to ten players could be leaving the club this summer as Jose Mourinho looks to rebuild for next season.

John Obi Mikel, Fernando Torres and Ashley Cole are among those who will reportedly make way at the club.

Former Chelsea star Frank Leboeuf has backed his old employers to make it through the Champions League game against PSG this week.

Chelsea take on the French giants in the last eight of the competition, with their tie starting tomorrow night.

“This will be a really tough game. They are two huge teams. It will come down to fine margins. But as a former Chelsea man I could not say other than that I want Chelsea to do it. That little bit of extra experience will give them the edge. Mourinho has never lost in the quarter-finals,” the Frenchman told the Express.
