Atletico Madrid fullback Filipe Luis: I could stay

Atletico Madrid fullback Filipe Luis says an announcement about his future will be made after Brazil's Copa America campaign.

The left-back is out on contract at Atletico Madrid this summer and has been linked with a move to Barcelona.

After Brazil's 3-0 Copa America win over Bolivia, Luis told Marca: "I'll say to my friends at MARCA and everyone else that you'll know [about my future] after the Copa America.

"There's a chance that I'll stay and there's a chance that I'll leave.

"Out of respect for the national team, it's not the moment to negotiate. I will sit down with the club and my representatives after the Copa America and we'll see what I have to do.

"But you know Atletico is the club in my heart and where I've spent the best years of my life."
