In a recent interview, Filipe Luis has confirmed that he asked to leave Atletico Madrid this past summer. The 33-year-old, who re-joined Atletico from Chelsea back in 2015, was the subject of much speculation with Paris Saint-Germain being very interested in acquiring his services. According to Luis, Atletico made it sound as if he was insisting on leaving which wasn’t the case, and that upset the Brazilian as he felt like they were trying to ruin his image in the public eye.
PSG worked hard to try and get the deal done before the summer transfer window officially shut, but Atletico refused to give consent to the move which clearly upset Luis.
Given his age, it would seem as if time is running out for him to make a big move like this, and if he’s going to succeed in pushing this through, he’ll probably need to make it happen either in January or next summer.
