It appears that this one really does have legs, incredible!



If you thought Manchester United breaking their transfer record to secure the signing of Paul Pogba for the second time was funny, then wait until you hear what The Daily Mail think is going on at Chelsea...

Here we are, in the year 2016, and David Luiz has reportedly been the subject of a £32m bid from the club that let him leave for PSG after the 2014 World Cup.

The Brazil international left for Paris Saint-Germain in June 2014 for £50m - a world record fee for a defender - yet he is ready to return to London in a surprise transfer.
Chelsea have grown increasingly frustrated in their search for a new centre back after seeing bids turned down for Alessio Romagnoli at AC Milan and Kalidou Koulibaly from Napoli.
