Joao Felix could reject a move to Manchester United and opt for a move to Atletico Madrid instead this summer.
The 19-year-old attacker has established himself as one of the hottest properties in Europe and will definitely be the subject of major interest from some of Europe’s heavyweight clubs after a breakthrough season with Portuguese giants Benfica.
The likes of Man City and Juventus are also interested in the impressive youngster whose release clause currently stands at £105million.
However, Joao Felix appears to have been impressed by Diego Simeone’s Atletico Madrid as the Argentine manager prepares for a summer rebuild of his squad.
AS have claimed that Joao Felix is interested in a move to the Wanda Metropolitano after being convinced by super agent Jorge Mendes.
The player initially had doubts about the La Liga outfit before his agent intervened by explaining the club’s image in Europe as well as their plans for the future.
Joao Felix is believed to be Atletico Madrid’s number one target this summer as they are likely to lose French striker Antoine Griezmann.
The likes of Lucas Hernandez, Diego Godin and Juanfran have also left the club. Diego Simeone is an admirer of Felix’s potential and will be hoping to help the player establish himself the more on the world stage.
