Filipe Luis confirms Diego Godin leaving Atletico Madrid

Filipe Luis believes Atletico Madrid teammate and fellow defender Diego Godin will leave the club on a free transfer this summer.

Uruguayan defender Godin is out of contract this summer and has been heavily linked with a move to Inter, who are said to have already agreed a deal with him.

“Losing players like Godin and Lucas Hernandez (who joined Bayern Munich for €80m) is a big loss for the dressing room,” Luis is cited as telling reporters.

Another Atleti defender, Jose Maria Gimenez, told reporters last month: “If he (Godin) ends up leaving, we’ll miss him. At the same time, however, everything he did for Atletico will remain and all our fans will be eternally grateful.”

Luis is also out of contract at the Wanda Metropolitano this summer, although he has suggested he is open to agreeing a new deal.
