BREAKING: Filipe Luis returning to Aletico


Left-back will leave Chelsea

Chelsea Football Club have announced that Filipe Luis will be rejoining Atletico Madrid.

The Brazilian defender joined The Blues last summer from the La Liga side but failed to settle in England and will now return to Atletico ahead of the new campaign.

Luis Failed to Settle

Luis was behind Cesar Azpilicueta in the pecking order at Stamford Bridge and after a lack of first-team football throughout last season, he informed the club’s officials that he was ready to leave.

The 29-year-old only made 26 appearances for Jose Mourinho‘s men during the 2014/2015 campaign and will now fly out to Spain in order to undergo a medical and agree personal terms.

Chelsea have wished Luis all the best for his future on their official website.
