£110M Portuguese star addresses rumours – Man United keen on transfer deal
Atletico Madrid star Joao Felix insists that he is committed to his La Liga club despite the rumours linking him with a move to Man United
Felix came through the ranks at Benfica as a teenager and earned a move to Atletico in 2019 after smashing 20 goals in 43 games during his debut season with the Portuguese giants – numbers that alerted all the big clubs in world football
But although he has not produced those kind of numbers at Atletico – he has become a big part of the Spanish side and Felix’s talents have also seen him break into the Portugal team, where he has scored three times in 22 appearances.
There has been many rumours in the media that the likes of Man United, Man City and Liverpool are all ready to delve into that transfer kitty and try to secure a transfer deal for the talented attacker
But amid all the speculation – Felix has admitted that he wants to stay with Diego Simeone at the Wanda Metropolitano and affirms that a departure this summer is not an option.
“An exit from Atletico is not on the table,” the 22-year-old explained to reporters from his native Portugal.
“I am calm about my future, and aware of what I can do, I feel good about myself.
“I am still on holiday, I have just started training to prepare pre-season but I’m not thinking about football too much.”
The lad is very talented and certainly a player that has the potential to become one of the best in world football – so it is easy to see why Man United> are keen
But right now – he does not need to leave the club – he is happy – he is playing on a regular basis for one of the biggest clubs in world football – it is the correct decision to stay put
