Barcelona rejected the signing of Filipe Luis two months ago

Jorge Mendes offered the side to the Catalan club and was met with a negative response. The defender does not lose the hope of renewing for Atleti or signing for Barça.

Filipe Luis met a few days ago with Miguel Angel Gil to try to extend his contract, which expires on June 30, one more season. The CEO of Atlético acknowledged to the side that the club is considering other options to fill his position and gave him little hope, but summoned him to give him a final answer later. The answer will depend on what Atlético finds in the market. For if it is negative, Filipe Luis has also offered to Barcelona, accepting the role of alternate Jordi Alba.

This offering of the Brazilian defender is not new, since two months ago Jorge Mendes met with the leaders of the Catalan club to propose their signing. At that time, the response was negative. Barcelona told the agent that Filipe Luis did not enter into their plans. The Barça club's priority is to find a young player to share a demarcation with Jordi Alba. Filipe Luis would be an insurable option because he would arrive with the freedom card, but his injury history is what he has done back to the Culé sports management. However, the season has just ended and the market has yet to take many turns ... So Filipe Luis does not lose hope of renewing another year with Atlético or of seeing his dream of playing in Barcelona fulfilled.

El The club that does love him is Flamengo. In fact, the vice president of the Brazilian club, Marcos Braz, and his sporting director, Bruno Spindel, traveled last May 10 to Madrid to try to convince the player to go to Rio de Janeiro. Filipe Luis thanked the gesture, but in these moments he prefers to exhaust other options.
