Chelsea boss Conte holds crunch talks with David Luiz, but...

David Luiz has held clear the air talks with Chelsea boss Antonio Conte.

The Daily Express says the defender has told the Italian he wants his place back or he'll be off.

The Brazilian was dropped by Conte after a disagreement between the two over tactics following Chelsea's Champions League defeat by Roma in Rome in October, and his reaction to being substituted in the home game against the Italians.

Luiz, now 30, has been linked with moves to Manchester United and Real Madrid, and it is understood that Bayern Munich are also motoring his situation.

A source close to Luiz said: "David like any player wants to play. So now he is waiting to see what happens."
