Atletico Madrid defender Filipe Luis is holding out for a summer move to Barcelona, according to a report.

Atletico Madrid defender Filipe Luis is reportedly holding out for a summer move to Barcelona.

Luis will see his contract with Atletico expire at the end of the season, and it is understood that the Brazil international will not be signing an extension at the Wanda Metropolitano.

Borussia Dortmund have been strongly linked with the defender, but according to Bild, Luis is holding out for a call from Barca, who could be in the market for a back-up to Jordi Alba.

Luis re-joined Atletico from Chelsea in 2015 and has made 26 appearances for Atletico during the 2018-19 campaign, contributing two goals and three assists in all competitions.

The 33-year-old, who is a 38-time Brazil international, has made over 300 appearances for his current club in all competitions.
