Filipe Luis ‘happy’ at Atleti

Atletico Madrid defender Filipe Luis has confirmed he ‘did not push’ for an exit from the club after being informed he would not be sold.

The full-back was strongly linked with an exit from Los Rojiblancos this summer amid interest from French champions Paris Saint-Germain, but no move materialised.

“I’m happy here at Atletico, I did not push for a move,” Luis told BeIn Sports.

“Three weeks ago I held a meeting with the club to tell them where I stood but the club told me that they did not want me to leave and would not negotiate a transfer.

“From then on in I did not push for an exit.”

Luis has a €30m release clause at Atleti but his contract at the Wanda Metropolitano expires next summer.
