Barcelona are expected to strengthen their position in the chase for Lazio’s Luiz Felipe in the next few weeks.
La Gazzetta dello Sport have stated that while Lazio’s negotiations to extend the defender’s contract have been going on for months, white smoke is yet to come. Relations between the parties remain excellent even now but an agreement is still some way off.
Barcelona are now looking at the Brazilian once again, after having looked at him two years ago. But they’re now ready to be serious for him and once the player is allowed to discuss terms with other clubs from January onwards, they would likely push for the defender. They would want him to arrive for free next summer.
The two Milan clubs like him and Simone Inzaghi has a real liking for him. Both the clubs are ready to make offers soon. But it is stated that Luiz Felipe really liked Lazio and if the club do offer a higher wage, he would certainly agree.
