Filipe Luis performs U-turn over Atletico Madrid future

Filipe Luis has performed a U-turn and declared he wants to stay with Atletico Madrid.

Off contract in June, the Brazil fullback has flirted with interest from across Europe, including from Barcelona and Manchester City.

But after victory over Valencia last night, Luis stated: "I hope I stay here longer, I want to stay at Atlético.

"It depends on the club if I leave, it's in their hands.

"I'm enjoying the last games and hopefully I can convince them to play with this shirt longer."
