PSG begin initial talks with Joao Felix

Atletico Madrid attacker Joao Felix has been linked with a move to PSG. Felix is ​​one of the most talented attackers of his generation.

He arrived at the Spanish team from Benfica in the summer window of 2019. The Portuguese international has so far played 128 games (in all competitions) with the colchoneros, registering 32 goals and 18 assists. Félix won the LaLiga Player of the Month award twice and was also included in the LaLiga Team of the Season twice.

According to Spanish outfit Revelo (via Sportskeeda), PSG have entered initial talks to sign Atletico Madrid attacker Joao Felix. He has apparently fallen out of favor with manager Diego Simeone and has not started a league game since Atletico’s 2-1 loss to Real Madrid last September.

Felix could be looking to walk away from the Estadio Metropolitano at the end of the current season. The Parisian team is closely following its situation regarding the future of Kylian Mbappé at the club. Mbappe reportedly wants to leave PSG in the January transfer window.

Premier League giants Manchester United are also linked with his signing during the summer window. They could try to sign him again during the next transfer window.
