Luis signed a four-year contract with Atletico Madrid on Tuesday after transferring from Chelsea.

Luis joined Chelsea last summer for Atletico but was never able to supplant Cesar Azpilicueta as the starting left back. He'll get a better opportunity to play back in Spain, and he could be a decent fantasy option given Atletico's solid defensive play.

Luis is negotiating a return to Atletico Madrid this summer, BBC Sport reports.

Luis only joined Chelsea from Atleti last season, but is already intent on returning to the Spanish club. With Cesar Azpilicueta established as Chelsea's first-choice left back, Luis could receive more regular playing time at Atleti, even if he's expected to miss the start of the upcoming campaign following his involvement in the Copa America this summer.

Luis will be unavailable for the beginning of the 2015/16 Premier League season, as he will get an extended rest following the Copa America this summer, reports.

Luis had a tough time getting starts this season, as Cesar Azpilicueta got most of the starts at left back. Luis is a more nature player at the position, but it's unclear if he'll be able to get more playing time next season, especially with a delayed start.

Luis said that he is happy with his position at Chelsea and is planing to see out his contract with the club, reports Sky Sports.

The defender has not earned a permanent spot in the starting line up, and has only made seven Premier League starts so far this season. Still, he remains content at the club, and wants to finish his three-year contract there.

Luis (calf) was an unused substitute for Chelsea's Champions League match against Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday.

Luis went unused against Everton last week as well, and he hasn't played in a non-Capital One Cup match since Jan. 17 against Swansea. With Cesar Azpilicueta playing well, it appears unlikely that Luis will get back in the starting XI for Saturday's match against Burnley.
