David Luiz: Training with Brazil and potential new team-mate Dani Alves

The Samba nation are playing against Switzerland this week and as the squad assembled in Basel, one of the main talking points was Luiz's future.

Chelsea rejected a bid from for the 26-year-old last week, but reports from Spain claim a second offer is imminent.

"I will only talk about the national team because this is all I can think about when I come here, that's how I think," Luiz is quoted by Globo Esporte.

"It was like this in Brazil during the Confederations Cup, and it will be like this here.

"You (press) can try everything, but you won't get anything from me."

Alves hope

Meanwhile, Luiz's international colleague and potential Barcelona team-mate Dani Alves was more open on the subject.

"I would be happy if David Luiz would come to Barcelona. I always want the best for my friends and advise them to join Barca if they get the chance," Alves told El Mundo Deportivo.

"He's not just a friend, but he has a lot of quality, too. The problem is not whether he would like to come here, but that you have to take him away from Mourinho and that will not be easy.

"Letting David Luiz join Barca will not be an option for him and even less so as it would make us stronger. It will be incredibly difficult, nearly impossible."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
