Chelsea refuse to match Filipe Luis price

Filipe Luis’s move from Atletico Madrid to Chelsea has hit a stumbling block as the Blues refuse to match Atletico’s asking price, reports The Daily Star.

Filipe Luis

The Brazilian full back has a buy-out clause in his contract at £19 million, but as things stand Chelsea are unwilling to raise their initial bid of £15 million. With Atletico holding out for the full amount stipulated in the clause, this leaves the deal at something of an impasse.

The 28-year-old is reported to be desperate to complete the move, having refused Atletico’s offer of a new contract and according to some sources pleaded with his club to lower their asking price to allow the transfer to go through.

It appears Atletico are ready to let Luis leave having already moved to sign a replacement, securing the services of fellow Brazilian Guilherme Siqueira from La Liga rivals Granada in a deal worth around £8 million.

Filipe Luis seems to be Blues boss Jose Mourinho’s preferred choice to fill the vacancy on the left side of Chelsea’s defence left by the departure of England international Ashley Cole. Luis has been an integral member of Atletico’s recent success, making over 150 appearances in all competitions since joining Los Rojiblancos in a big money move from Deportivo de La Coruña in 2010.
