Barca linked with double swoop
Chelsea are ready to cash in on David Luiz and Branislav Ivanovic with Barcelona ready to pay Â£40million for the duo.
Incoming boss Jose Mourinho will look to reshape the Blues squad over the summer and is ready to let the duo move on in order to raise cash for his own purchases.
Luiz has recently played down talk of a move to the Nou Camp but he would no doubt be interested in a deal if the Spanish champions came in and made a firm offer.
The same can be said of Ivanovic and a double move to the Catalan giants could be on the cards.
Porto centre-back Eliaquim Mangala has already been lined up as one replacement, while any money raised could also go towards the signings of Italian midfielder Daniele De Rossi and Napoli hitman Edinson Cavani.
