Man United held negotiations with €50m-rated Portugal international

Joao Felix could become available for a transfer in winter after Atletico Madrid’s Chief Executive’s massive hint. The 23-year-old attacker has been on a collision course with coach Diego Simeone, as he doesn’t want to stay at the club anymore. Portugal international is the biggest bet Los Colchoneros took by investing huge sums in a young, unproven star. Those were chief executive Miguel Angel Marin’s thoughts on Felix, who he very much likes. The relationship between Joao and Simeone has deteriorated from how things have transpired over the last 18 months. Simeone’s style and tactical ideas do not match those of the Portuguese forward’s. The Portuguese’s displays have dwindled for La Liga giants in that period, although he stays one of the top talents in Europe. The impasse between the former Benfica attacker and coach could result in a move away from the club. Joao wants to leave and has interest from Barcelona, Man United and Chelsea, among others. The Catalan giants had reportedly proposed a loan move with an option to buy. Man United are keen and could be one of the few sides able to afford a footballer like Felix. Like other interested parties, Atletico Madrid quoted a fee of more than €100m to Man United for Felix. The news from Marin about Joao’s situation in the background will boost Erik ten Hag’s chances of signing the Portuguese attacker. Joao Felix, however, will look at all offers on the table before deciding his future.
