Manchester United must act fast to secure the signing of Joao Felix or they might end up losing him to Arsenal.
Earlier in the day, we covered a story (via The Star) stating the Gunners are ready to go all in to hire the services of the Atletico Madrid attacker.
According to an exclusive story published by The Sunday People (press image provided below), the Old Trafford club lead to seal the signing of the Portuguese international.
The media outlet have mentioned that Man Utd are ready to pay the salary of Felix, who earns around £255,000 a week, but are only prepared to offer a loan fee of £3million.
On the other hand, the Rojiblancos are looking to get a loan fee worth £9.5million and a mandatory option to make the move permanent for £70.5million at the end of the campaign.
It is reported that United have the first option to buy him but they have 48 hours to match any offer forwarded by another club.
Joao Felix was a superstar at Benfica but he has failed to regularly score and create goals in the ultra-defensive system of Diego Simeone.
The relationship between the manager and the playmaker has broken down this season, which is why, Felix has rarely started in the current campaign.
Ten Hag has revealed that he trusts Anthony Martial but the Frenchman cannot be forced to play for 90 minutes every three days, therefore, the Dutch manager is looking to lure a new forward this month.
In your opinion, should Man Utd meet Atletico Madrid’s demands to sign Joao Felix?
