He hasn't had Chelsea in his bio for ages.

He did, before I remember it was something like ''Professional football player of Chelsea'' or something like that.

That was a long time ago. It's been "Enjoy The Life" for a long time now.

Either way he hasn't came out to deny or confirm anything unlike before when he usually laughs off the rumors after a few days. The only thing we know is that Barca's bid is real and first bid has been rejected by the club. Kind of the same with Bale and Rooney atm, keeping quiet and suddenly being ''injured''.

He is kind of just praising him though, didn't even mention anything about his situation atm to be fair

He mentioned it before (stating with all words both him and Mata were for sale) and now he comes here and points his qualities. Why would he do that to a player he will allow to leave?

edit: *weren't for sale

Barcelona have bid 17M for Agger.

We must've definitely strongly told them he isn't for sale then. Good of true. Edited by The Skipper

How valuable is David Luiz to Chelsea? - EPL Index

Decent read. Agree with some of it but not others, especially the part about how Cahill complements Luiz' game.

Decent read for sure and some very interesting stats but also some ridiculous ones. Luiz's dominance in interceptions is no surprise and is, IMO, his main strength but it's nice to see the statistical evidence back up what we can see. Some of the other statistics are baffling to use. "Chances created" for example are based entirely on Luiz taking more shots especially free kicks from dangerous areas, something other no other CB really does. Yes, Luiz creates more chances, but he also took more shots than all the other CBs on the list combined and with a very poor success rate. (2 goals on 56 shots means you are taking far too many shots. Cahill, for example, had the same number of goals on 16 shots.) Like this previous omission the article conveniently ignores the biggest negative aspect of Luiz's game IMO which is that he tries to do too much offensively and is not efficient enough to justify it. Luiz had an 81% passing rate, easily the lowest on the list and a number that is very poor for a central defender. Kompany for example, had an 89% passing rate. Most of that difference comes from Luiz terrible percentage on long balls (55%, Kompany's for example was 73%)) which re-enforces those of us who believe that Luiz's game is much better when he keeps it simple and sticks as being a very good central defender instead of trying to run the attack. (Bad percentage shooter, bad percentage passer means a lot of turnovers for every positive result, way more than I would consider a good trade-off.)

Theres a reason teams are prepared to spend £40m plus for him, because he is one of the best defenders in the world.

and that is why we MUSN'T sell
