Chelsea star flattered by La Liga link

David Luiz says that he is flattered by rumors that place him at the top of FC Barcelona summer transfer wish list.

Speaking to The Sun, the 25-year-old said: “I’m happy that a club such as Barcelona is interested in me. They’re a team of winners and their interest is a source of pride for me’

‘I’m a Chelsea player for now. I work hard every day to make people appreciate what I do.

‘I try to do my job in the best way possible, wherever I am.’

The big haired defender has impressed all at StamfordBridge since completing a £22m move from Benfica in January 2011.

And with his contract not due to expire until 2017, Chelsea will demand big money if they are to be tempted to sell the Brazilian.

Noted for his versatility, it is rumored that Luiz could switch to a defensive midfielder position if his move to Catalan does become a reality.
