Chelsea Sign Filipe Luis
Chelsea confirm signing of Atletico Madrid’s Brazil international left-back Filipe Luis for £15.8m.
The Brazilian defender has signed a three-year contract and will wear the no.5 shirt.
He will replace former England left-back Ashley Cole, who joined Roma last week after the Blues opted not to offer him a new contract.
He was on Brazil’s standby list for the 2014 Fifa World Cup.
On signing, the 28-year-old said: ‘This move is a dream come true for me. I now have the opportunity to play for Chelsea, and also in the Premier League.
‘I’m very happy and looking forward to getting started and giving my best for the team during the coming seasons.’
