Chelsea are close to sign Atletcio Madrid defender Filipe Luis

Share

According to reputed and trusted Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio Atletico Madrid left back Filipe Luis is set to join Chelsea as the Blues have agreed to pay a whopping €25m exit clause to acquire the services of the Brazilian.

When Di Marzio, the Sky Italia reporter says a transfer is done, you can be rest assured that in reality, that the deal  is set to confirmed in the coming hours. Moreover Fabrizio Romano, staff of the Di Marzio website had claimed earlier this week that the 28 year old will make a switch to the Stamford Bride in the summer.

The news comes in the wake of Atletcio Madrid’s capture of Granada of Guilherme Siqueira for €10m. Surely two starting left backs won’t be accommodated and Luis has long been linked with the London side who are desperate to sign a left back after having released club legend Ashley Cole earlier last month.

Football 365 writer Matthew Stanger however believes that the Blues are paying over the wall for Luis who is set to turn 29 next month, given Chelsea’s policy of dealing with players above 30 years.

The story also claims that the Rojoblancos are hopeful to keep Thiabut Courtois on loan for yet another year but Jose Mourinho earlier said that the young Belgian will be under the sticks for Chelsea next season.

  1. Chelsea should forget about him because he is too old. Go for younger player and not pay big money for him.

  2. Felipe is aged, CFC should look for young player that will stay long.

  3. I don’t know why chelsea need dis guy, why not call draft patrick Van anaholt to fight for the starting shirt with utility bertrand and Azipilicueta? Or better still chrisiansen can also give a worthy competition for the shirt, mourinho is killing our youngster why do we sign the? He went ahead to sign Fabregas to while Lampard while we have Mceachrane, Lucas Piazon, Ruben loftus cheek, Lewis Baker, John swift who are capable to fill the void left by lampard.

Or better still chrisiansen can also give a worthy competition for the shirt, mourinho is killing our youngster why do we sign the? He went ahead to sign Fabregas to replace Lampard while we have already replacement in Mceachrane, Lucas Piazon, Ruben loftus cheek, Lewis Baker, John swift who are capable to fill the void left by lampard.

  5. Cfc should go 4 younger players. It doesn’t make sense 2 waste dis huge amount of money on an old man like him. who will not represent a mkt value. Mouriho ve started again wit his old men policy which he used @ inter wen he d team will collapse. We ve young left backs in d of betrand n van aholt he should develop dem not relying on already made all d time

  6. morinho is killing our youngstar

  8. chelsea doesnt need dis guy,draft in patrick Van anaholt,Azipilicueta Or chrisiansen . mourinho is killing our youngsters.why even sign Fabregas to replace Lampard when Lucas Piazon, Ruben loftus cheek, Lewis Baker, John swift are present.does any one still recalls william ?

  9. CFC going for Felipe Luiz is not a bad deal bcus big money comes big performance.

  10. This guy has so much experience & still plays like he’s 21.
    We need him.

  11. In my own opinion I don’t think he’s a bad buy par say, we can get out like 3seasons frm him and our young stars can be his understudy. Bertrand 4me is not up to chelsea standard, he shld be sold, van anaholt shld be called back to be luis’s understudy…

  12. I cannot be a party to this business.

  13. So many infant in here claiming to know football, kids doesn’t win you trophies, men does, I mean real men!
