Real Madrid and Juventus are both reportedly interested in signing out-of-favour Chelsea defender David Luiz during the January transfer window.

Real Madrid and Juventus are reportedly lining up a January move for out-of-favour Chelsea defender David Luiz.

Luiz is understood to have fallen out with manager Antonio Conte in the wake of Chelsea's 3-0 defeat to Roma in October, since when he has started just one game for the Blues across all competitions.

The 30-year-old has been suffering with a knee injury in recent weeks, but even before that he had fallen behind the likes of Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen in the pecking order at Stamford Bridge.

The Daily Mail reports that Real Madrid and Juventus have both registered an interest in the Brazil international, who could leave West London in January.

Chelsea are understood to value Luiz at just £23m, alerting two of Europe's biggest clubs who are both looking to breathe new life into their title defences during the second half of the season.

Madrid are keen on Luiz due to his capability of playing in defence and midfield, while Juventus are still looking for a replacement for Leonardo Bonucci, who joined AC Milan during the summer.
