Atletico agree Filipe Luis return?

Atletico Madrid have reportedly agreed to re-sign Chelsea left-back Filipe Luis for €16m.

According to Marca, the Brazilian will pen a three-year contract with Los Colchoneros - whom sold him to the Blues for €22m last summer.

Inter were also interested in signing the player, but he is understood to have made it clear from the outset that Atleti would be his only destination if he left Chelsea.

Filipe Luis made just 13 Premier League appearances in his sole season at Stamford Bridge, having arrived with former Rojiblancos teammates Thibaut Courtois and Diego Costa.

However, he had a far more frutiful time in the Spanish capital, winning the Copa del Rey, Europa League and La Liga between 2010 and 2014.

Atleti are now expected to ship out current first-choice left-back Guilherme Siqueira, with Portugal likely calling, and Raul Jimenez, who has also been linked with the short trip east.
