The defending European champions are believed to be in the market for a number of new players in the coming months, with Pep Guardiola keen to make his own mark on the squad he has inherited.
One man he is particularly interested in is Luiz, who he sees as the ideal man to add flair and technical ability to his backline.
The 26-year-old has often been criticised for his exuberant performances since moving to the Premier League, but it’s hard to question his ability as a footballer.
Bayern have reportedly made initial contact with the Brazilian’s representatives after Guardiola told members of the Bundesliga giants’ hierarchy that he wants the centre-back.
Luiz’s future at Chelsea is expected to be discussed in the coming weeks with the ex-Benfica man set to return from helping his national side win the Confederations Cup.
Both Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona are also in the hunt, and are willing to match the speculated £23m price tag which has been placed on the defender’s head.
New Chelsea chief Jose Mourinho is said to be keen to keep Luiz, but could be tempted by a big offer as he plots his own ambitious transfer plans.
Chelsea fans, should you keen David Luiz?
