Placed in the sights of PSG, Joao Felix, in cold with his coach Diego Simeone, could leave Atletico Madrid this winter, under conditions.
Arrived in July 2019 from Benfica Lisbon for a check of 127 million euros, Joao Felix is no longer a first choice in Diego Simeone‘s ideas since the definitive return of Antoine Griezmann. A substitute this season, the 23-year-old attacking midfielder is not satisfied with his situation and would like to change his tune during the next winter transfer window. The number 7 of the Colchoneros could thus bounce back in Ligue 1 after the World Cup.
In search of an additional striker, Paris Saint-Germain have reportedly made Joao Felix one of their January priorities. Luis Campos would have even already approached his compatriot Jorge Mendes, agent of the native of Viseu, to signify to him the interest of PSG and evoke his arrival in France during the winter. Especially since the managers of Atletico Madrid would be open to a departure of the young compatriot of Cristiano Ronaldo, but on one condition.
PSG Transfer Window: Atletico Madrid sets its price for Joao Felix
Asked last November about his future with Atletico Madrid, Joao Felix preferred to kick on, explaining in particular that he was currently very focused on the 2022 World Cup with Portugal. “Leaving Atletico Madrid? I’m focused on the national team. We’ll see,” Joao Felix said in remarks reported by El Chiringuito.
But according to several concordant sources, the Golden Boy 2019 would have asked his representatives to find him a new exit door this winter. This Thursday, the Madrid daily AS revealed that the management of Atletico Madrid would not necessarily be opposed to a transfer of Joao Felix, but will not listen to any offer below 100 million euros. The Paris SG is therefore warned.
