Report: Manchester United willing to pay €7.5 million for ‘scintillating’ Joao Felix

Manchester United are only prepared to pay half of Atletico Madrid’s €15 million demands for a Joao Felix loan deal in January. That’s according to a report from the Telegraph who claim that United won’t be stumping up anymore than €7.5 million for the 23-year-old this winter. So it seems as though this one has reached an impasse, and it’s highly unlikely that the Portugal international will be joining Erik ten Hag at Old Trafford, not for the time being anyway. The Spanish club are seemingly just demanding far too much money for a loan deal for Felix… Manchester United could miss out on Joao Felix With United only prepared to pay a €7.5 million loan fee for the Portuguese ace, this one seems like it just won’t be happening. The Portugal international currently earns a whopping £250k-a-week at Atletico, according to Capology. That will obviously represent a huge problem for United, with Atleti demanding that those wages are covered in full by any potential suitors. Felix joined Atleti from Benfica in 2019 for €120m (£106m). However, despite his obvious talent, he has struggled to establish himself in the Spanish capital. The Portugal international has bagged just 33 goals and 18 assists in 129 games for the Spanish club. That isn’t a good enough return on the money that Atleti paid to sign him. However, Felix is an outstanding talent who needs to be utilised properly in the correct system. Described as a ‘scintillating’ player (Metro), the 23-year-old has everything needed to go on and become a top-class player. He seems perfectly suited to United’s fast and furious attacking style. Unfortunately for Manchester United and Ten Hag though, it appears as though Joao Felix will not be joining in January. Stats via Transfermarkt.
