Felix Ronaldo Portugal

If reports in the media are anything to go by then Manchester United may end their pursuit of signing Sancho and could look for an alternative to strengthen their attack this summer.

According to The Star, the Red Devils are looking to stop chasing the Dortmund winger and are targeting other top players and our focus is on Joao Felix.

Transfer: £13million-a-year terms agreed – Potential signing to earn as much as Man Utd duo

The renowned British source claim that with time running out, Woodward could turn to lure the Portuguese international from Atletico Madrid.

Felix had a brilliant 2018-19 campaign with SL Benfica and last year, the Rojiblancos splashed the cash to sign the youngster in order to replace French international Antoine Girezmann, who moved to Barcelona.

The 20-year-old is a versatile playmaker, he can play in multiple offensive positions but naturally, he is a secondary striker, who likes to play behind the main center forward.

In the last campaign, the Selecao star started 29 games in all competitions under the management of Argentine boss Diego Simeone and directly contributed in 12 goals. Thus far, he has played 7 games for his country and scored 1 goal.

Felix’s current contract with the La Liga side will expire in 2026, he is one of the highest earning youngsters in the world and gets around £255,000-a-week (The Sun).

The former Primeira Liga boy is a skillful playmaker but Man United already have a world class star in the form of Bruno Fernandes, who starts in the No. 10 role behind the striker. The ex-Sporting CP attacking midfielder is irreplaceable at Old Trafford.

In your view, should Solskjaer move to sign Joae Felix?
