Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is confident David Luiz will be staying.

There have been reports recently claiming Luiz has told the club of his desire to join Barcelona but Mourinho says he is not aware of that.

He said: "I don't know if he said that. What I can say is that he is not going to.

"The last quotes I read were Luiz saying he is not speaking about clubs when he is with the national team, which is a fantastic quote that I appreciate.

"When they are with the national team they are national team players, they are not club players.

"That is the last quote I have and it is an intelligent one."
