London Evening Standard have seriously shocked Chelsea fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they seem to think that Filipe Luis has turned down a move to Real Madrid.
After the La Liga side made enquiries about the future of the left back, they were apparently rebuffed, with Luis happy in London despite reports, and willing to try and break into the first team and dislodge Cesar Azpilicueta.
We don’t think he has a hope in hell of this actually happening unless injury strikes one of Jose Mourinho’s untouchables, so a move to Real Madrid may have been a brilliant option for him and the Blues who could have cashed in on the Brazilian.
Chelsea fans. Does this news shock you? Does Filipe Luis seem like someone who will eventually settle in at the club or will be always be playing second fiddle to Cesar Azpilicueta? Let us know your thoughts below.
