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 Luis arrived in London as a Spanish league champion alongside fellow former Atletico man Diego Costa and made his debut as a substitute in our 6-3 win against Everton at the end of August.
The 29-year-old’s first start came against Schalke in the Champions League, and he netted his one Chelsea goal from a free-kick in our Capital One Cup win at Derby.
In total Filipe Luis played 26 times for Chelsea. We wish him all the best for the future.
