Atletico Madrid left-back Filipe Luis has expressed his desire to retire at the club if the club offers him a long-term deal.
The Brazilian left-back’s contract is set to end in June and an agreement is yet to be reached by the two parties.
“When I came back from Chelsea, I planned to retire at Atletico Madrid,” he told Globosporte.
“I was 30 years old and I would end that contract at 33 or 34.”I would renew for another two or three years and then I would be working at Atletico Madrid; that would be perfect for me.
“But we know that in football things can change and Atleti have a rule, in quotation marks, of only renewing for one year [for] those [players] who are over 30.
“They promised me, in front of the group, that at the end of the market they will make an effort and offer a renewal.
“I hope that Atleti will offer me a contract of two or three years, so that I can finish my career here, but it depends on the club.”
