Filipe Luis claims he rejected Man City & Dortmund moves before joining Flamengo

Filipe Luis claims he had the chance to join Manchester City, Borussia Dortmund or Paris Saint-Germain this year before opting to return home to Brazil with Flamengo.

The veteran left-back brought his nine-year association with Atletico Madrid – via a year away at Chelsea – to an end this summer when his contract expired.

With league titles in Spain and England, two Europa Leagues and two Champions League finals to his name, the Brazil international was a wanted man at some of Europe’s biggest clubs.
