Antonio Conte has responded to claims Chelsea star David Luiz has agreed to join Real Madrid ahead of the January transfer window.

Brazil international Luiz has fallen out of favour at Stamford Bridge after being involved in a bust-up with the Chelsea manager following the emphatic 3-0 defeat to Roma in the Champions League.

Luiz is said to have questioned Conte’s tactics, leading the manager to force him to train on his own ahead of the following game against Manchester United and ultimately leaving him out of his matchday squad.
