Filipe Luis: Atletico Madrid are my priority but...

Filipe Luis wants to renew his contract with Atletico Madrid this summer but has not “closed doors to other options”.

The 33-year-old is out of contract at the Wanda Metropolitano this summer and has been strongly linked with a move to Barca this summer to provide back-up for Jordi Alba.

Reports earlier this week also claimed Brazilian club Flamengo had made an approach for the full-back.

“There is a contract in place with Atletico and my idea is to renew that agreement,” Luis told Globo Esporte, in quotes cited by the Spanish press.

“But I have not closed doors to any other options, I am open to listening to offers from elsewhere if clubs are interest in me, but I have not heard from Flamengo.”

The left-back started his career at Brazilian side Figueirense before moving to European football with a switch to Ajax in 2004 and has also enjoyed stints at Deportivo La Coruna and Chelsea.

The same report from his native country confirms an approach from the Catalan giants while Borussia Dortmund are also said to hold an interest in a potential move.
