Bayern Munich plots 40m bid for Chelsea star

Bayern Munich boss Pep Guardiola is reportedly ready to make a 40million bid for Chelsea defender David Luiz.

The Sun reports that Bayern Munich are ready to offer a deal that could rise to 45million, including bonuses.

An insider told The Sun: "The performance exposed some weaknesses that Pep believes could be sorted out by bringing in Luiz."

Luiz joined Chelsea from Benfica for 21million just two years ago.

Since returning to Stamford Bridge, Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has insisted that Luiz is not for sale.
