Chelsea will allow David Luiz to leave for Barcelona if their £29million asking price is met.

Barcelona failed with a £21m bid for Luiz last summer, but are preparing a fresh offer for the defender.And according to reports in Spain, £29m is the price at which Chelsea would accept a bid from the Spanish giants.

Jose Mourinho is open to offers for the 26-year-old with John Terry and Gary Cahill his preferred central defensive partnership.

Chelsea could hold out until after the World Cup to sell the Brazilian though, as a good showing at the tournament would increase his price-tag.Luiz has been deployed in midfield at times this season, but faces further competition in the shape of Nemanaja Matic, who is today undergoing a medical.

Matic is expected to cost the Blues £22m and will be partly funded by the £16m sale of Kevin De Bruyne to Wolfsburg.
