Deportivo will sell left back Filipe this summer

Galician newspaper El Ideal Gallego claims that Deportivo La Coruña left back defender Filipe Luís (23) will be sold by his club this summer.

Deportivo president Augusto César Lendoiro would have informed Deportivo manager Miguel Angel Lotina about the plans of the club.

Barcelona would until now be the only club who has contacted Deportivo. But while Barcelona has made a 5 million euro° bid, Deportivo would be asking a transfer fee of 10 million euro° plus the loan of one player. Deportivo's wish list would include five names: Barcelona players Bojan (18), Pedro (21) and Víctor Sánchez (21), and Barcelona Atlètic players Thiago (18) and Jeffren (21).

Italian sports paper Tuttosport claims that Juventus is also interested in Filipe. Juventus sports director Alessio Secco would be following the Brazilian for several weeks now. Madrid sports tabloid As claims that Barcelona could be moving and accept that they will have to pay 10-12 million euro° for Filipe, who has a buyout clause of 20 million euro°.

Asked about the exit rumours, the player’s agent José Carlos Lages said in an interview with As that a transfer seems likely: "Filipe Luis knows that Depor needs money because they have to make several payments and he would accept to leave for a big club. If it's good for the club, it will be good for him too.

I've talked with commercial director Pablo Pereiro and he told me there's nothing concrete yet. So teams should now talk with Depor first. I get calls by representatives, agents and intermediaries asking for his demands, but they should negotiate with who has the transfer rights until 2013.

Filipe is now on holiday in Brazil. I told him that's the best thing he can do now. He's delighted with the interest of important teams like Barça or Juve, because that means he's doing very well. He has a contract with Depor, he's feeling very good here and who wants him should contact Depor. If he leaves, he'll go to a big club that is competing for the big trophies."
