Chelsea defender David Luiz remains on the radar of Barcelona.

With Tito Vilanova's appointment now formalised, Barca's summer market plans have kicked off in earnest with a new centre-half top of the agenda.

El Mundo Deportivo says Luiz is loved by the Barca coaching staff, though the club's directors have placed him in the third rung of transfer targets due to Chelsea's reluctance to part with the Brazilian.

Athletic Bilbao defender Javi Martinez and Borussia Dortmund's Mats Hummels are Barca's top two priorities.
