Atletico Madrid fullback Filipe Luis a target for Barcelona

Atletico Madrid fullback Filipe Luis is a target for Barcelona.

The Brazilian veteran is off contract at the end of the season and intends to leave Atletico at the end of the season.

Luis was blocked from moving to PSG last summer, but now could remain in the LaLiga next season with Barca keen.

Mundo Deportivo says Barca see the fullback as cover for Jordi Alba.

Luis has never been shy of his admiration for Barca, having recently stated Leo Messi deserved the Ballon d'Or ahead of teammate Antoine Griezmann.
