Atletico Madrid’s Filipe Luis ‘a real option’ for Barcelona

Barcelona are seriously considering the signing of free agent Filipe Luis from Atletico Madrid this summer, report El Mundo Deportivo.

The 33-year-old is out of contract at the Wanda Metropolitano this summer and the Catalan giants are eyeing a move on a free transfer.

The report claims the experienced Brazilian defender would provide the immediate competition for long-serving Barca full-back Jordi Alba.

Upcoming left-back Juan Miranda, 18, is viewed by the club as a player for the future but such a deal would likely limit his first-team opportunities in the near future.
