Bayern Munich sporting director Matthias Sammer has said the club has no plans to move for Chelsea defender David Luiz at the moment.

Luiz, 26, is a long-term target for Barcelona who are reportedly monitoring the player's situation at Chelsea this summer following the appointment of Jose Mourinho.

Pep Guardiola's arrival at Bayern has also seen the Treble winners linked to the Brazil international but Sammer is quoted as saying they are not in the market for any more players at the moment.

"At the moment we don't plan to bring more players in", Sammer stated, "but the transfer window is open for another two months and if anybody gets injured, we might react to that."
