Deportivo La Coruna fullback Luis Filipe says he would welcome a return to Real Madrid.

The Brazilian is recovering from an ugly ankle injury and was visited by Real chiefs Florentino Perez and Jorge Valdano at his La Corunna home last week.

"I left open the doors to Real Madrid, the club which has supported me most after the injury. I played for the Castilla and made many friends there," said Filipe.
