The return of Filipe Luis to Atletico Madrid’s official
Just over a year ago, Atletico announced the sale of Filipe Luis Chelsea, following in the footsteps of Spanish Brazilian Diego Costa. Now rojiblanco announces the return of Luis Filipe, in a clear sign of the turn’s football.
The Brazilian side has not done anything right in their adventure in the Premier League. Although Chelsea won the league title really should not feel very partaker of it since he played just 15 games in the competition. In all, and counting European competition and cup competitions, Filipe has participated in 26 games.
He played virtually the same as in his last season at Depor before arriving at Atletico Madrid, although that year was conditioned by the serious injury suffered. Therefore, almost there was no other option but to return to his former home for four seasons and where he has reached his best.
The march of Russian Zenit Ansaldi left free vacancy in the office on the left side, and the first choice of Atletico Madrid was always Filipe Luis. Aware that the Brazilian Player was not at home and was not only willing to leave Chelsea but returning to Madrid, was the logical step.
So, Chelsea and Atletico Madrid have had no problems in reaching an agreement for the sale of the player. Atletico will pay 16 million euros to “reclaim” Filipe Luis, when Chelsea paid 20 million euros last summer. The move has not gone wrong in this respect to the mattress.
Atletico Madrid in the title is practically assured, especially considering that Simeone remains unconvinced Guilherme Siqueira. Moreover, the Brazilian could have foot and a half outside the rojiblancos and call at Juventus.
