Chelsea prepared to part with Filipe Luis if Atletico Madrid willing to pay

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has revealed that the club is set to part ways with Filipe Luis.

The Brazilian left-back continues to be heavily linked with former club Atletico Madrid and Mourinho says he can return to the Vicente Calderon if the Spanish club pay the required fee.

"If they want him back they have to pay, they have to pay and then we have to react and go to the market to keep our balance," Mourinho told Sky Sports News HQ.

Filipe Luis, 29, joined Chelsea from Atletico last summer for a fee of around £15million but struggled for regular game time with the eventual Premier League champions.
