Filipe Luis still hasn't signed with any club
Atletico Madrid star, Filipe Luis is set to leave the club after his contract expires at the end of the month. The Brazilian was offered a new deal, but he rejected it as he wanted to leave the club this summer.
The former Chelsea full-back has been linked with Spanish giants Barcelona, Turkish side Fenerbahce and Brazilian side Flamengo. All three are possible destinations for the left-back and reports suggested that he has agreed a deal with Flamengo.
However, Luis has rebuffed all speculations and claimed that he has not made a decision yet. The defender is keen on playing well at Copa America if he gets a chance and will make a decision only after the tournament. He said,
“I have not signed with any team yet, I have not said yes to any team and I will not do it until the Copa América finishes,”
“I have given my word out of respect for the Brazilian national team, I ask patience to the Flamengo fans and to all the journalists who want to know the future of all the players that are here. Many are going to change their teams this summer, but speculation does not help.”
Some reports in Brazil also suggest interest from Borussia Dortmund in the full-back, but the German media have replicated none of that. The Bundesliga side have Raphael Guerreiro, and Achraf Hakimi to play in that position right now but are reportedly set to lose the former to PSG this summer.
Hakimi, meanwhile, is on loan from Real Madrid for another season. BVB are looking to sign him on a permanent deal, and Filipe Luis could be a great backup and mentor for him.
