Metro have Chelsea fans looking excited here in the Football Transfer Tavern as the publication claim the Blues are moving ever closer to netting Filipe Luis.
The Atletico Madrid left back has essentially forced through a move to the club after making it clear his future lays at Stamford Bridge and was only waiting for a fee to be agreed with Diego Simeone’s side.
Chelsea are finally prepared to meet the £20 million asking price and are willing to spend big on the 28-year-old who will replace Ashley Cole who joined Roma this summer.
One of our punters notes that the Blues are buying up a fair few of Atletico Madrid’s key players, with Diego Costa already a Blue, Thibaut Courtois returning to his parent club, not to mention a proposed return for Tiago.
Now it seems Mourinho has decided that Filipe Luis is his man and will wrap up a deal once the medical is passed.
Chelsea are also heavily being linked with Real Madrid midfielder and Arsenal target Sami Khedira and could well add to their summer recruits with Mourinho clearly meaning business this summer.
Chelsea fans. Do you think this is a £20 million title-winning move? Can Filipe Luis even come close to truly replacing Ashley Cole? Let us know your thoughts below.
