Leeds has offered 27 million for a player to join a new club for free ...

Leeds United reportedly rejected a 27 million bid for Lazio's centre-back Luiz Felipe two years ago next month. And the Whites were far from the only club tolash their eyes on a man who appeared to be on his way to the top of the European football.

Barcelona, according to the Rome-based publication La Lazio Siamo Noi, was also interested. So were Paris Saint-Germain.

Felipes' sudden move to Real Betis is seen in a couple of ways, with him joining the Copa del Rey winners on a free transfer following his contract with Lazio.

On the other hand, this is a potentially inspiring book, assuming Felipe can rediscover the form that had Leeds willing to pay a club record transfer fee in an attempt to defy competition from two of the games' bona fide superclubs.

The fact that Betis were facing relatively little competition from Europe's elite this summer despite Felipes' free-agent status is an indicator of how much the Italy internationals' reputation has deteriorated in the last two years.

The Brazil-born goalkeeper says Tuttomercatoweb when she learned that Betis wanted him, "I did not think twice."I only had Betis in mind, according to Tuttomercatoweb. I really wanted to come here.

I know the importance of this city and this club, I know the stadium and its size, and I know that there are always 60,000 spectators in the stands.

Betis won the Copa del Rey last year. This year, we will start from scratch and see how far we can go.But we have a strong team and we have our goals.

Real Betis have an excellent track record when it comes to giving talented players a much-needed fresh start and reestablishing their careers on the right track.

Felipe is hoping that he may be resurrected at the Benito Villamarin.
