Lazio defender Luiz Felipe: I'm proud of Barcelona and Man City interest

Lazio defender Luiz Felipe admits he's flattered by interest from Barcelona and Manchester City.

Barca sports chief Eric Abidal is in the market for a new centre-half this summer - and Felipe is on his radar.

Felipe told Globo Esporte: “I saw that there were articles on the alleged interests of FC Barcelona and Manchester City.

"Of course, I am happy and proud of it, because in one way or another, it proves that the work is done well and that people have seen and appreciated it.

"I am a calm and very focused boy. I only think of leaving my mark on the history of Lazio."
