Filipe Luis considers renewing with Atletico Madrid

Full-back Filipe Luis may continue with Atletico Madrid next season despite currently being a free agent, according to Marca.

The report states that Atleti is the defender’s ‘Plan A’ and he will continue talks over a new deal following the completion of the Copa America.

The 33-year-old has also been linked with a summer move to Barcelona, where it was reported he could provide back-up to first-choice Jordi Alba in the position.

Brazilian club Flamengo have also been heavily linked while Turkish giants Fenerbahce have also been mentioned with a deal.

Atleti are said to have tabled a one-year extension to the experienced defender’s deal, despite already having landed Renan Lodi in his position.

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.

Separate reports 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.
