Filipe arrives in the Spanish capital after a season at AFC Ajax in the Netherlands. He was previously with Figueirense FC in his native Brazil, playing 24 first-team matches and scoring one goal.

The 20-year-old full-back is highly regarded and represented his country at this summer's FIFA World Youth Championship. However, he may have to wait to make the breakthrough at Madrid, being destined for duty with the Merengues' second team, Real Madrid B.
