Deportivo La Coruna wing-back Luis Filipe is interesting Real Madrid.

The left-sided Brazilian defender came close to joining Barcelona in the summer, only to be priced out of a move by Depor president Augusto Cesar Lendoiro.

Now, Cadena SER says Real are considering Filipe for the January market with management unconvinced by current left-back options Marcelo and Royston Drenthe.

Filipe is a former Real Madrid player, having spent 12 months with the Castilla for season 2005/06.
