Chelsea boss Roberto Di Matteo insists that David Luiz is not for sale this summer at any price.

Chelsea manager Roberto Di Matteo has said that defender David Luiz is not for sale at any price.

Luiz has been linked with a series of clubs during the summer, including speculation of bids from Barcelona and Manchester City.

Di Matteo said: "Luiz is definitely part of our long-term future here.

"It's normal he gets interest because he is a Brazilian international centre-back but we have three internationals for that position and it's great. We need to have that for a club like us."

Luiz is expected to replace the injured John Terry in Chelsea's team for their Premier League match against Newcastle United after the Blues captain suffered a neck injury.
