Chelsea have sold Filipe Luis back to Atletico Madrid for £15m, paving the way for Mourinho to sign the Bundesliga's best left-back Abdul Baba Rahman, according to the Evening Standard

The £14m rated Ghanaian was in inspirational form for Augsburg last season, helping the German minnows to qualify for the Europa League with a fifth-place finish. It's understood Roma are also interested in his signature, but it'd be difficult for any aspiring young player to turn down a place with the Premier League champions to go to Serie A. 

The one man standing between Rahman and regular football however is Chelsea's first choice left-back Cesar Azpilicueta, who proved too difficult to budge for Filipe Luis. 

Here’s the exciting youngster in action.
