Manchester United Summer Target Joao Felix Transfer Listed

English Premier League giants Manchester United have received a huge boost as one of their top targets from last summer, Joao Feliz will now be available in the January transfer window.

After spending time in the academy at OS Pestinhas, Porto and Padroense, Joao Felix joined Benfica’s academy.

After graduating from Benfica’s academy, he was promoted to the club’s reserve team. Félix then quickly impressed the Benfica management and was promoted to the senior team. In his only season with the club, Felix has won a Primeira Liga title with the Portuguese side.

Ultimately, the winger joined Spanish giants Atletico Madrid in the summer of 2019 for a whopping fee of €126m. The Atlético de Madrid winger has already represented Portugal on the international stage. He was part of the Portuguese team that won the inaugural UEFA Nations League title.

Manchester United can take advantage of Joao Félix’s situation

Manchester United’s summer target Joao Felix signs signing

Joao Félix arrived at Atlético de Madrid with high expectations. In his second season with the club, the winger won the league title. So far he has scored 31 goals and has provided 18 assists in 127 games for the Spanish club. This is far from what was expected of him.

Now, according to a report from Cadena Ser, Spanish giants Atletico Madrid will be looking to sell the Portuguese winger in the upcoming January transfer window if a good offer comes through.

Throughout last summer, Manchester United chased the winger. But Atlético de Madrid was not interested at the time. But now the situation has changed a lot. With Atleti’s transfer on Felix’s roster, United may be looking to sign the winger in the upcoming winter window.

However, they will have to fight many big clubs for the winger. One of the known names that are very interested in the winger is FC Barcelona. The Spanish side has reportedly been monitoring the winger for a long time.

CRICBABA

But with Barcelona’s recent financial difficulties, United surely have the upper hand in this transfer. If they can really sign him and match him up with Antony and Rashford, their forward line can become one of the best in Europe.

Now, before the January window, Joao Félix will be part of the Portuguese team at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. He is expected to start for the Portuguese team. Any good performance in the tournament will increase his value.

Decent start for the Red Devils

Manchester United have had a good start to the season. Erik ten Hag’s team qualified for the round of 16 of the Europa League by finishing second in the group. The Reds Devils are currently in fifth position in the EPL with twenty-three points.

They will face Aston Villa in their next game.
