Filipe Luis wants former teammate Diego Costa to join him in Brazil at Flamengo.

Luis and Costa were teammates at both Chelsea and Atletico Madrid.

Luis now plays for Flamengo in the Brazilian top flight.

He recently helped his side lift the Copa Libertadores.

Speaking after the game to copalibertadores.com, he believes the Spanish forward would be a great success in Brazil both on and off the field.

He said:

“He is the ideal player for Flamengo, with his style of play.”

” The fans would take to him quickly.”

“I hope to be here to live this dream with him. It would be very cool.”

According to 90min.com Costa had this to say on a potential return to his native Brazil.

“Of course, I want to play in Brazil, because I never played [there].”

“I have this desire and this dream. Clubs like Flamengo, if the time comes, you won’t say no.”
