Man City rival Barcelona for departing Atletico Madrid fullback Filipe Luis

Manchester City want to bring Atletico Madrid fullback Filipe Luis back to England.

Off contract in June, Luis and Atletico have agreed he will leave at the end of the season after being blocked from joining PSG last summer.

Mundo Deportivo says Barcelona are interested in Luis, though City are also keen.

City boss Pep Guardiola is eager to find a specialist left-back to cover for the injury-plagued Benjamin Mendy.

A move to City would mean a return to England for the former Chelsea defender.
