Another day, another report linking Joao Felix with a move to Manchester United in the current month.
As per today’s version of Marca (news image provided below), the Seleccao playmaker has requested agent, Jorge Mendes, to find a way out of Atletico Madrid in the January transfer window.
The Madrid based news outlet have mentioned that Mendes has not been able to bring in any offers that would satisfy the Rojiblancos for a permanent sale.
As far as the option of the loan is concerned, the Wanda Metropolitano outfit wants to accept a transfer of Felix to one of the two favorites, Manchester United and Arsenal.
It is stated that Man Utd and the Gunners are willing to pay the wages of £4.4m-£5.3m (5-6million euros) for the remainder of the season, in addition to a loan fee.
Yesterday, we covered a story via The Telegraph stating that the Old Trafford club do not intend to pay the loan fee of £13.3m and are only prepared to pay around £6.6m.
Felix wears No. 7 at Atletico Madrid and the iconic shirt is vacant at Manchester United since the departure of legendary forward, Cristiano Ronaldo.
Erik ten Hag needs to replace the former Real Madrid man, who was unveiled in Saudi Arabia yesterday.
Joao Felix is one of the best young attackers around. He can be deployed anywhere in the attacking midfield. Should United sign him to replace Ronaldo?
