The possible departure of Luiz Felipe from Real Betis continues to be a hot topic in the world of football. According to the latest information from Relevo journalist Matteo Moretto, Al-Ittihad and Betis are in constant contact and are intensifying their negotiations over the Brazilian defender.
The idea of Luiz Felipe making the leap to the Saudi Arabian league has been a real option for some time and it seems talks between the clubs have picked up steam again. The 26-year-old centre-back was a key player in Betis’ defense and his departure would mean a significant loss for the team.

Betis manager Manuel Pellegrini has said in the past that the departure of Luiz Felipe would weaken the team significantly. His contribution on the pitch and his ability to maintain defensive stability are aspects Betis appreciates immensely.
For his part, Luiz Felipe wouldn’t mind joining Al-Ittihad and playing in the same league as big-name players like Karim Benzema and N’Golo Kanté. Saudi Arabia has become an attractive destination for several footballers lately and the Brazil centre-back could be the next to join the trend.
As talks between the clubs progress and the transfer deadline approaches, uncertainty lingers over Luiz Felipe’s future. Betis fans are closely watching as this situation unfolds and if their esteemed defender finally embarks on a new adventure in Saudi Arabia.
