Luiz happier about Chelsea future after Mourinho talks

Chelsea defender David Luiz is feeling good about his future in London after talks with Jose Mourinho.

The Mirror says Barcelona turned to defender Luiz after failing with a move for his compatriot, Paris Saint-Germain's Thiago Silva, but have so far failed to come back with a second bid after an opening £35m offer was rebuffed.

Chelsea will not even entertain talks unless a bid in excess of £45m is on the table and Barca hopes that Luiz would demand a chance to leave have failed to materialise.

While it is understood the player would be willing to go to the Nou Camp if the two clubs agreed a deal, he was gratified to hear from Mourinho how much he is valued by the returning Chelsea chief.

Luiz has no intention of attempting to force through a transfer against the wishes of the Blues' hierarchy and the manager.
