Manchester United have been linked with Joao Felix for some time and the latest update coming from Spain is positive.
As per today’s version of Marca (news image provided below), the Portuguese international’s exit is the only way out and Atletico are waiting for offers to sell him.
The Madrid based news source have mentioned that so far, no bid has arrived but Man Utd lead to secure the signing of Felix.
It is reported that Arsenal are interested in signing the Seleccao playmaker as well but the Gunners are the second option at the moment.
Marca claim initially the Rojiblancos were looking for an offer around 127 million euros, the amount they paid to sign him four years ago, to offload him in January.
However, due to lack of proposals, CEO of Atletico, Miguel Angel Gil Marin, is now willing to agree a fee of at least 100 million euros to sell the 23-year-old in the winter transfer window.
Super agent, Jorge Mendes, is proposing solutions and has made the Colchoneros aware that Man Utd, the main candidate, and Arsenal can approach to sign the attacking midfielder.
Due to poor relations with manager, Simeone, Joao Felix has not regularly started this season but he did excel for Portugal under Andre Santos at the World Cup.
The former Benfica star’s current contract at the Wanda Metropolitano will expire in 2026 and he earns around £255,000-a-week (The Sun).
In your view, should Man Utd pay 100 million euros to sign Joao Felix?
