Madrid - Atletico Madrid says Brazil defender Felipe Luis will return to the club for four seasons after a one-year spell at Chelsea.
Atletico said on Tuesday it reached an agreement with Chelsea "for the transfer of the winger."
The 29-year-old Felipe Luis was one of three Atletico players to join Chelsea last season.
Atletico said it was reinforcing its squad with "one of the best wingers in the world," and that it expected him to adapt quickly as "he already knows our club and our way of playing."
Felipe Luis first joined Atletico from Deportivo La Coruna in 2010, and played 184 times.
He made 26 appearances with Chelsea, and helped it win the England Premier League and League Cup, but he was not able to displace first-choice defender Cesar Azpilicueta.
