Over the past week, the press have been speculating about the future of Filipe Luis. The opinion was that he was keen on a return to Atletico this summer after limited appearances for the Blues this season. However, Luis has spoken out and re-affirmed his commitment to Chelsea.

He said:

"It's a new situation in my career, after almost nine years playing almost every game.  When I arrived here in Chelsea, [I knew I wouldn't always play]. But the numbers are not that bad, I played half of Chelsea's games this season. [...] Obviously, everyone wants to play, everyone wants to be important, this is no different, but I completely understand [Mourinho's] technical [choice] and we have to respect always.

When I arrived here in Chelsea signed a three-year contract, which I want to fulfill. The team is in a great time, the team was champion of the [League] Cup, has the possibility of being champion of the Premier League, which is the most important to me. I do not think at the time no speculation, nothing of it. My head is completely up to Chelsea for this season finale. I know you can talk a lot and will talk a lot, but my head is prepared for this [finish to the] season which is very important both in Chelsea, as the national team. A chance of winning the Premier League title [following the] Spanish [one] is not easy. Also [playing] with the national team [in the Copa America] would be wonderful. So I just think about it and nothing else."

It's always going to be hard for Luis to break into the team with Cesar Azpilicueta playing ahead of him. The Spanish full back has been described as the best one on one defender in the League so despite the fee Chelsea paid for the Brazilian, it was always going to take something special to oust Azpilicueta.

What I do like though, is his commitment to Chelsea and the focus he has on the title run in and beyond. It would be easy to sit there and complain about not playing but he doesn't.


As for Atletico, well it seems that Chelsea could be about to contact them again to make an enquiry over the availability of Spanish midfielder Koke. Again, Filipe Luis is being linked as a make weight to get the deal done but as we have heard he has no intention of leaving.

So what of Koke? Granted he is a quality midfielder but I am not so sure he is someone that we need. I wouldn't be surprised if this is just pure speculation.

What do you people think of Luis' time at Chelsea so far and of the link with Koke?
