Atletico Madrid left-back Filipe Luis leaves the door open for a move away from the Wanda Metropolitano, but admits that his priority is to sign a contract renewal.
Filipe Luis has said that his “priority is to renew” his contract with Atletico Madrid, amid reports from Spain that he has been targeted by Barcelona.
The 33-year-old, who is into the final two months of his existing deal with Los Rojiblancos, is said to be one of three left-backs being lined up by Barca ahead of the summer transfer window.
Luis would like to stay on at the Wanda Metropolitano, but Atletico’s reluctance to offer long-term contracts to players over 30 could force him out of the club.
Asked about his plans beyond the end of 2018-19, Luis told Globo Esporte: “My priority is to renew with Atleti. But I do not close doors. I have no offer, but the heart will decide”
Luis, who has featured 24 times for Atletico in all competitions this term, is also wanted by Brazilian club Flamengo.
