Filipe Luis ready for Chelsea switch

The Daily Mail have reported that Filipe Luis is set to complete a big money move from Atletico Madrid to Stamford Bridge.

The 28-year-old left back has been the subject of negotiations for several weeks, but it now appears that the Blues are willing to match the buy-out clause in his Atletico contract, thought to be around £21 million.

Filipe Luis is Brazilian and has four caps for his country, although he is not part of the current World Cup squad. However, he has played most of his career in Spain, initially with Deportivo de La Coruña but for the last four years in Madrid with Atletico.

Last season he excelled, playing 42 times in all competitions as Los Rojiblancos won their first La Liga title in 18 years and reached the Champions League final for the first time since 1974.

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho’s move for Filipe Luis is just the latest in a series of raids on the Vicente Calderón Stadium, after recent moves to bring striker Diego Costa and midfielder Tiago Mendes to west London.

It may also not be the last piece of business between the clubs this summer, as Atletico have been strongly linked with a move for Chelsea’s in-demand Belgian international striker Romelu Lukaku as they seek to replace their departing title-winning stars.
