A year on from being linked with a move to Barcelona, David Luiz may finally get the chance to leave Chelsea, with Bayern Munich reportedly preparing a £25million bid. For all his detractors in England, Luiz would be a very smart addition for the Bavarians, with Pep Guardiola needing a quick, ball-playing defender to improve on his system at the Allianz Arena.

Luiz is also highly-rated by Brazil coach Luiz Filipe Scolari, who is set to start the Chelsea defender alongside Thiago Silva this summer. Despite all this, Luiz has never been able to win over all of the supporters at Stamford Bridge, as well as the manager. A sale, therefore, appears imminent.

So if Chelsea do go ahead with selling Luiz this summer, who has played in midfield too, these are the six possible replacements.
