Let’s take a look at the most recent information that has been available on the future of the Portuguese superstar.
A “shortcut” is taken by Man United.
According to information provided by ESPN, Manchester United was aware of the chance to acquire Joao Felix during the transfer window in January.
Because of the obvious requirement to improve the offence following Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure, the Red Devils have more incentive to plan to acquire the Portuguese star now than they had before he left.
The fact that Atletico Madrid is requesting a valuation of approximately one hundred million euros is, according to the source, one of the factors that is making things difficult for Manchester United.
As a result, the Old Trafford team is considering taking a “shortcut” by negotiating a loan contract that includes a buyout provision for themselves at a later date.
On the other hand, during the summer transfer window, it is not anticipated that Felix’s price will drop by a significant amount.
A club withdraws
It has been reported that the Gray Lobster, which is on par with the major clubs in Europe, has added Felix to their target list.
Due to the fact that two of Bayern Munich’s most important offensive players, Thomas Muller and Choupo-Moting, have both reached the age of 33, the club will soon be forced to replace its ɑssɑᴜlt with younger players.
In spite of this, a report from Mundo Deportivo claims that Bayern has made the decision to back out of this transaction.
It is not yet entirely obvious why the Gray Lobster is no longer interested in Felix, but it is possible that the enormous transfer fee of the former Benfica star has caused the Bundesliga Champion to waver in their interest in the player.
The record transfer fee that Bayern Munich ever agreed to pay was only about 80 million euros. This is the most costly deal in the history of the club (Lucas Hernandez).
The phrase “Arsenal trick”
A few days ago, the media simultaneously confirmed that in conjunction with the injury of Gabriel Jesus, the Gunners have decided to “speed up” and are currently in the lead position to recruit Felix. This news came at the same time as the media reported that Gabriel Jesus had been injured.
On the other hand, evidence provided by Fabrizio Romano indicates that there is not the slightest possibility that Arsenal is in the lead in this conflict.
The words of the Italian journalist, as published on CaughtOffside, are as follows:
“Despite rumours that Arsenal have the upper hand in the race to sign Joao Felix, to the best of my knowledge there are no other good candidates at this time in the competition.”
“Felix’s agent is in talks with numerous clubs; this is the moment to meet and discuss the matter; however, neither the player nor Atletico have made any progress.”
The very first club to be turned down was
According to information provided by The Athletic, it is not the leading clubs in Europe’s top leagues but rather Joao Felix’s “super agent,” Jorge Mendes, who is attempting to persuade his client to sign with Aston Villa.
After Mendes assisted Unai Emery in sitting in the “hot chair” at Villa Park, it is common knowledge that his relationship with the owner of Aston Villa has improved to the point where it is now quite positive.
However, as journalist David Medina verified, the likelihood of this transaction taking place is extremely low due to the fact that Felix has absolutely no interest of moving to the Birmingham club.
In light of the fact that Felix is being pursued by a number of top clubs, it is very clear that he has no reason to sign with a club that will not even be eligible to compete in the European Cup this year.
