It’s not a secret that David Luiz’s relationship with Chelsea’s manager Antonio Conte is broken beyond repair. The defender’s disagreement with the Italian manager could have consequences as early as next year.

The 30-year-old centre-back fell out of favour with Conte following Chelsea‘s 0-3 defeat against AS Roma in October, and has struggled to win back his place for the Stamford Bridge outfit. And since David Luiz wants to get playing time before the 2018 World Cup, it is not farfetched to imagine the defender leaving Stamford Bridge for a second time.

He left to PSG the first time, but now he would likely move to Spain since Real Madrid are reportedly interested in the talented defender.

Los Merengues are looking to bolster their defensive depth, and see David Luiz as a great backup to Sergio Ramos and Raphäel Varane, just like Pepe was in the past few years. Madrid would like face stiff competition to acquire the Brazilian, however, as the Daily Mail reported both FC Barcelona and AC Milan are also consider launching bids for the defender.

It remains to be seen whether Real Madrid’s push for David Luiz is the real deal, or if they prefer another target such as Leonardo Bonucci. But Los Merengues are clearly looking to bolster their defensive line, and David Luiz would certainly be a great addition for the Santiago Bernabeu outfit.
