Agent of Filipe Luís confirms interest from ChelseaCould the Brazilian swap Spain for England?
Atlético Madrid defender Filipe Luís has been heavily linked with a move to Premier League side Chelsea recently and his agent has revealed there is genuine interest from the London club.
The Blues are on the look out for a left-back with Ashley Cole set to leave and it appears Filipe Luís is the man at the top of their wanted list.
The Brazilian’s agent, García Quilón, spoke to AS about his client recently. Inside Spanish Football quoted him, he said: “The interest (from Chelsea) is there, but Atlético doesn’t want to sell.
“They decided to keep the majority of the squad intact for next season. Then they’ll see what happens with specific individuals, but their intention is to not sell anyone.”
With that news it seems, for the time being, Filipe Luís won’t be leaving Atlético anytime soon. However, although the La Liga winners don’t want to depart with anyone, it seems likely that a handful of players will depart.
The odds would certainly suggest Chelsea can lure the Brazilian to Stamford Bridge, it may have to wait until later in the summer though.
