Ben Jacobs, a reporter for CBS, claims that Manchester United is “also in the conversation” to acquire Joao Felix, a striker currently playing for Atletico Madrid.
Ben Jacobs of CBS has reported that Manchester United is “also in the conversation” for the potential signing of striker Joao Felix from Atletico Madrid. Felix now plays for Atletico Madrid.
There have been grumblings over the past several weeks suggesting that a number of the greatest clubs on the African continent, including the Red Devils, are among those who are interested in signing the player who is currently 23 years old.
It was announced yesterday by Fabrizio Romano in a column that he writes for CaughtOffside that Felix is “ready to depart” the Wanda Metropolitano since “there are difficulties with Diego Simeone.” Romano made this revelation in a piece that he wrote for CaughtOffside.
And 90min have subsequently backed up those suspicions, stating that Manchester United, Chelsea, and the giants of Ligue 1 Paris Saint-Germain are all considering making a move for the Portugal international midfielder.
On the other hand, it is said that Felix’s potential suitors would prefer an initial loan deal with an option to buy, and it is presently unknown whether or not Atleti would be prepared to accept such terms. However, it is possible that Atleti would be willing to accept such terms.
Aston Villa is yet another prospective purchaser, despite the fact that they are currently positioned towards the bottom of the Premier League rankings.
According to reports, Felix’s agent, Jorge Mendes, is actively trying to convince his client to sign with the squad from the Midlands in order to take advantage of the strong connections he has established with the Athletic. The Athletic provided the information that was presented here.
Jacobs confirmed to GMS that, “The Glazers are talking about future ownership changes and/or investment with Manchester United, who are also in the conversation for Joao Felix.”
“And on top of that, the fact that they spent a lot more money than they planned for in the summer, and then the fact that the fee is so high, all adds up to the Glazers really having to over-invest in Erik ten Hag, and Manchester United in January, with a budget under financial fair play that they simply may not have,” said the journalist. “And on top of that, the fact that they spent a lot more money than they planned for in the summer, and then the fact that the [Further citation is required] “And on top of that, the fact that they spent a lot more money than they planned for throughout the summer, and then the fact that they spent a lot more money than they intended for during the winter.”
“And at that point, you have to start balancing whether one, it is affordable, and two, if it is worth it compared to other more cost-effective options in the market that might allow a club like Manchester United or Arsenal to do a two-for-one if they choose to move in January.” “And at that point, you have to start balancing whether one, it is affordable, and two, if it is worth it compared to other more cost-effective options in the market.” “At this point, you will need to begin weighing, first, if it is within your financial means, and second, whether it is worth it when compared to other solutions on the market that are more cost-effective.”
Should Felix decide to make the move, his countrymen Bruno Fernandes and Diogo Dalot, both of whom have previously expressed their admiration for Felix in public, should make it easier for him to adjust to life at Old Trafford relatively quickly. Diogo Dalot has already expressed his admiration for Felix in public.
Throughout his senior career, the adaptable attacker has played on both sides and in the forward position on several occasions. However, he has been deployed the majority of the time in the number 10 position, which is situated behind the team’s primary striker.
Felix’s clinical ability in the last third of the pitch has been demonstrated by the 53 goals he has scored and the 29 assists he has provided for Atletico and Benfica in 172 combined matches. This is despite the fact that under Ten Hag’s coaching United does not typically line up with a player occupying that position.
