Mourinho wants £40 million Benfica ace to replace £30 million Chelsea star!?
There has been some reports on the Times website which have claimed Chelsea’s incoming boss Jose Mourinho has targeted Benfica star Nemanja Matic as a possible replacement for David Luiz.
Adding to the sense of irony is the possibility that Matic’s purchase will be funded by the sale of David Luiz to Barcelona. As first reported by The Times last week, Mourinho is prepared to sell the Brazil international to raise money for the midfielder, central defender and centre forward he plans to add to Chelsea’s squad once his own four-year contract to return to the club is formalised this week.

Many blues fans are questioning why Luiz could be heading out the door, But Mourinho must have his reasons and Matic has proven that he is a great player since he left Stamford Bridge.
