Chelsea have completed the signing of Brazilian defender Filipe Luis from Atletico Madrid on a three-year deal, the Premier League club have confirmed.
Luis will wear the No.5 shirt and will fill the void left by Ashley Cole, who departed Stamford Bridge after eight years on a free transfer this summer to join Roma.
"This move is a dream come true for me. I now have the opportunity to play for Chelsea, and also in the Premier League," said the 28-year-old left-back.
"I’m very happy and looking forward to getting started and giving my best for the team during the coming seasons."
Filipe Luis becomes the third member of that Atletico side to move to Stamford Bridge this summer, after Diego Costa completed a €44m move earlier this month and Thibaut Courtois returned from a two-year loan spell.
