Negotiations on left back Filipe put on hold

Catalan sports papers El Mundo Deportivo and Sport both claim that Barcelona is waiting for the return of Deportivo president Augusto César Lendoiro from a trip to Mexico to pick up the talks on a transfer of Deportivo La Coruña left back defender Filipe Luis (23).

Sport claims that Barcelona is offering 10 million euro°, while Deportivo asks 12 or 13 million euro plus one player on loan. El Mundo Deportivo claims that a deal could be found for a fee between 10 and 12 million euro and that Barcelona has already reached a personal agreement with Filipe. Juan Figger, one of the player's representatives would already be in Spain to follow the events.

Asked about the rumours linking Filipe to Barcelona, the player's agent José Carlos Lages said in an interview with Spanish football site Fútbolmercado that he isn't in contact with any club: "They are rumours spread in the press but no club has contacted me. My player is happy to see all those big clubs being interested in him but there's nothing concrete.

Barça didn't make an offer. I only know that Depor received an offer of 6 million euro but I cannot yet reveal from which club it was. Filipe is now earning a very decent salary but if they give him a rise, he would be willing to move to one of the mentioned clubs. Everything depends on the conditions."

its ok, its not like the negotiations have been held up by lack of agreement or something. barca already agreed terms with filipe, and are just waiting for the prez to come back. no need to worry.

Another useless 'B' grade signing.

He isn't worth more than 5 million euro.

I was talking about Valdes. Filipe would be lucky to get 2 million a year.
