After sealing the deal for Arsenal's Alex Song, Tito Vilanova isn't finished in the transfer window and has set his sights on improving the backline of Barca's defence with a move for the Chelsea defender.
Luiz is valued at around 30m according to Chelsea and Barcelona are ready to test the waters with a bid.
Yesterday afternoon, he tweeted a photograph of himself on a private plane declaring that he was preparing to fly to Barcelona. He later said he was returning to London. The club maintained he was attending a Nike event in the city and had permission to do so from their manager, Roberto Di Matteo, despite being injured.
Chelsea are not short on defenders and selling on a player they bought last January could be seen as a smart bit of business and profit.
