Chelsea and United targets Luis and Miranda comment on futures at Atletico

Atletico Madrid

After being pictured back at training, Filipe Luis and Miranda have commented on Chelsea and Manchester United rumours.

The speculated break-up of the La Liga winning Atletico Madrid side is not happening as anticipated.

While Diego Costa and Thibaut Courtois will be Chelsea players next season, the club have assured Koke and Diego Godin will stay.

Tiago will leave on a free transfer, but Atletico are doing their best to convince Miranda and Filipe Luis to stay put.

Both players returned to training on Monday, and could not escape questions over their futures.

Miranda, linked with a transfer to Manchester United, shot down rumours he could move on:

He told Atletico fans, as reported by Marca: "Don't worry, I'm staying."

There has been talk over him even renewing his contract in recent days, and this is the clearest sign yet that a switch to Old Trafford is no longer on the agenda.

As for Filipe Luis, linked with a transfer to Chelsea, he was far less committal.

All he could say when questioned was: "We'll see what happens."

Luis is reported widely to be pushing for a move to Stamford Bridge, but the Blues are yet to trigger his 24 million release clause.

Atletico have already bought a replacement in Guilherme Siqueira at left-back, but they are sticking to their guns, unwilling to sell any player for a price below that stipulated in their contract.

Luis may yet get his move, clearly he is not entirely convinced he should remain at Atletico, as for Miranda - he appears further from a switch to Manchester United than ever.
