Joao Felix has no future in Atletico Madrid

La Liga

Joao Felix’s future is independent of Atletico Madrid, despite persistent rumors to the contrary.

The Portuguese superstar wants to leave the capital club as soon as possible after having a falling-out with Diego Simeone, so a move in January seems imminent.

Numerous European powerhouses have indicated interest in signing Felix, including Paris Saint-Germain, Bayern Munich, Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester City, and Manchester United.

The former Benfica player has been linked to PSG, but they do not want to bring him in during the current transfer window.

The 23-year old and PSG have not held any discussions, according to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, who also said that the Ligue 1 powerhouse is only considering a move for the player next summer.

According to a recent report from Le10 Sport, Felix is being chased by Manchester United and Arsenal, who are both in negotiations with his agent Jorge Mendes for a transfer in January.

The article further states that the Premier League duo are the only players left in the race for transfers.

The previous summer, Man Utd made a massive $135 million offer to Atletico Madrid in an attempt to sign Felix.

The Red Devils are still keeping tabs on the young Portuguese player as they search the market for offensive reinforcements in the wake of Cristiano Ronaldo‘s exit.

The injury to Gabriel Jesus, who will be out for a few months, has caused the Gunners to prioritize signing a striker in January.

It will be interesting to see whether the Felix claim is true because Atletico is thought to have set a price tag of about €100 million.

The only option appears to be a loan transfer, and even Atletico Madrid is aware that most clubs would find it difficult to make such a large payment in the middle of the season.
