Bayern Munich enter race to sign Chelsea's 'out-of-favour' defender Luiz

London, Dec 3 : Bayern Munich has joined the race to sign out-of-favour Chelsea defender David Luiz, according to reports.

According to, Luiz, who joined the Blues from Benfica in January 2011, has been forced to watch from the sidelines in recent weeks as Gary Cahill has forged a partnership with John Terry, with the Brazilian making just 11 appearances all season.

After reportedly turning down a move to Barcelona over the summer, Luiz's Chelsea future has been thrown into doubt once more, with German champions Bayern Munich now entering the fray according to A Bola, the report said.

Should another club come calling in January, Luiz may be forced to seriously consider his options with the World Cup fast approaching in his home country, the report added.

Whether Chelsea would be willing to sell is another matter, however, with only Branislav Ivanovic then remaining as cover at centre-half for Terry and Cahill. The report further said.

However, it seems under Jose Mourinho, Luiz, once regarded as a future Chelsea captain, will have a tough time regaining a regular place in the Blues' starting XI, the report mentioned.
