It’s yet another busy day at Eastlands as they are causing havoc, even on Christmas, around the transfer window. Benfica defender David Luiz is their latest target, who’s also been linked to current champions Chelsea. Man City have picked up on the bargain £21million price, a price which is considerably low to any Manchester City fan.
Chelsea and Manchester City have been long admirers of David Luiz and rejecting a contract extension has fueled the rumours that he could be leaving Portugal next month. Mancini has been keen to add to his ranks and establish competition amongst his defenders. Currently City have 4 centre-backs and it is guessed Luiz will have to settle on the bench, much to his dismay. City have dominated the market so far and players have been linked with and away from the club with outcasts Emmanuel Adebayor & Roque Santa Cruz pleading for a move away.
Luiz boasts 3 Brazil caps to his name and has been at Benfica for the last 3-4 years after joining from Vitoria. He has struggled so far this season, although recent seasons are what have seemed to catch the eye of the public. He is known well in Portugal and has netted 4 goals at Benfica since his arrival in 2007.
