Atleti strike Filipe Luis deal

Atletico Madrid have struck a €16m deal with Chelsea for the return of Filipe Luis, according to the Spanish Press.

Reports on Saturday suggested the transfer was on the verge of collapsing as the Blues had raised their valuation of the left-back, but Los Colchoneros are understood to have duly obliged.

AS claims Atleti CEO Miguel Angel Gil Marin closed negotiations with Chelsea on Saturday morning, agreeing to pay an extra €1m for the Brazilian.

Filipe Luis, meanwhile, had lunch with the capital giants in El Burgo de Osma and was a spectator as they beat Numancia 2-0.
