It’s official! Filipe Luis has completed his imminent move to Atletico Madrid after spending just a year at the Bridge!
According to the official Chelsea website:
“Chelsea Football Club has today agreed terms with Atletico Madrid for the permanent transfer of Filipe Luis.
The Brazilian returns to the Spanish club after a year with the Blues in which he helped us to both Barclays Premier League and Capital One Cup successes.”
Filipe joined the Blues last summer with a reputation of being one of the best fullbacks in Europe. Little did he knew about Cesar Azpilicueta who absolutely owned the Left-Back spot with some brilliant performances in the league and Europe.
After failing to displace the Spaniard for a year, Luis decided to move back to the Spanish capital this summer as the deal was officially completed today.
So, with the departure of Luis, we currently don’t have a backup at the Left-Back spot!
Blues are now linked with Alex Telle and Baba Rahman to challenge Azpilicueta for the spot. Hopefully, we can wrap up the deal soon enough and get on with it.
Goodbye, Luis! We wish you all the best for your future!
