Monaco monitoring Chelsea's David Luiz situation

Luiz has fallen out with Antonio Conte

Chelsea resigned David Luiz from Paris Saint-Germain for £32 million on transfer deadline day in August 2016, after selling the defender to the Ligue 1 giants back in 2014.

The Brazilian quickly settled into the team and inspired Chelsea to win the 2016-2017 Premier League under Antonio Conte. He was one of the outstanding players that season and was named in the PFA Team of the year.

But The 31 year old has failed to established himself as a regular starter for the Blues after he fell out with Conte in October. Andreas Christensen has been preferred ahead of him. He has also struggled with injuries, managing to play just 17 times this season.

Monaco are keeping an eye on David Luiz’s situation and would be open to making an offer should he be put up for sale, Goal understands. Ligue 1 signed Chelsea’s technical director Michael Emenalo in November and believes he will be the key to secure the deal.

The centre back’s future will depend a lot on Conte’s future as the Italian has also been linked with summer exit. Luiz likely to want to leave if the former Juventus head coach remains in charge at Stamford Bridge.

But Chelsea wants to wait until the managerial situation is solved in the summer to make a decision over Luiz future. He still remains a hugely respected figure in both the dressing room and among the higher-ups at the club.
