Filipe Luis Left Out of Deportivo Photo Shoot

Barcelona could be given an opening to go for the kill and snap up Filipe Luis, after the attacking left-back was surprisingly left out of Deportivo’s official pre-season photo shoot.
According to Marca and Sport, the Brazilian was inexplicably missing from the final group picture despite his club reiterating that they would not sell the player if the Blaugrana could not meet the asking price.

Filipe has already publicly declared that he wants a move to the Camp Nou, and his omission from the photo could suggest that SuperDepor may now be resigned to losing the 23-year-old at some point this summer.

The full-back - who spent one season on loan at Real Madrid B four years ago - did, however, train with the rest of the squad during yesterday’s session.

Depor are reportedly still holding out for a transfer fee of around €14 million, but Barca so far have only gone as high as €9m.

Could be a tachnical error, but I feel that this means they know Barca has been paying the right price all the time.
