Transfer: Man Utd take steps to sign £70million playmaker, who’s contacted Martial – Face competition

The renowned French source have mentioned that Man Utd have fierce intention of making a huge move to sign the Atletico Madrid playmaker. It is further stated that the Old Trafford outfit want to count on the services of super agent Jorge Mendes, who also represents Cristiano Ronaldo and helped United sign Bruno Fernandes in the winter transfer window.

However, Le10Sport claim that the Rojiblancos would not like to sell the 20-year-old star because they consider him the future of the club.

Felix had a fantastic campaign last term with Benfica and then last summer, Argentine manager Diego Simeone opted to sign him in order to replace French playmaker Antoine Griezmann at the Wanda Metropolitano.

This season, so far, the Portuguese international has directly contributed in 9 goals (6 goals and 3 assists) in 20 starts in all competitions for the La Liga club.

He is one of the highest paid youngsters in the world and as per The Sun, the Seleccao starlet earns £255,000-a-week. The 5-capped international is mainly a secondary striker but he can effectively play on the flanks as well.

United believe that he could be the next Ronaldo at Old Trafford but it must be remembered that Atletico Madrid spent 120 million euros to hire his services (Le10Sport). So, he is not going to come for cheap.

Man Utd have mainly used Bruno Fernandes in the No. 10 role behind the main center forward. Do you think, they should move to sign Joao Felix?
