Atletico Madrid want reunion with Chelsea flop, Filipe Luis

Atletico Madrid manager, Diego Simeone has confirmed his interest in having a reunion with Brazil international, Felipe Luis. The left back left the 2014 La Liga champions for Chelsea last summer but has failed to live up to his potential and struggled all season long to command a place in the starting XI.

While talking to reporters, Simeone admitted that he is very much interested in bringing Luis back to Vicente Calderon.

“[Filipe Luis] is a player we like a lot as a kid but who also knows us well and has given a lot to the team,” Simeone said. “I hope it happens.”

At. Madrid struggled to show consistency last season and Simeone would be hoping that the summer transfer dealings turn the tide this time around.
