A recent story from Diario AS provided an update on Joao Felix’s future. The Atletico Madrid attacker has fallen out of favour this season under Diego Simeone and is apparently looking for a move outside in the January transfer window.
Felix has only made five league starts so far, trailing Alvaro Morata and Antoine Griezmann in the pecking order.
Felix is frightened and frustrated due to a lack of playing time, and the attacker has even sought the advice of a psychologist to assist him get through this difficult period.
As a result, the Portuguese international is set on leaving Atletico Madrid in the near future.
His current situation at Atletico Madrid has not gone ignored, with Paris Saint-Germain, Bayern Munich, and an English club, maybe Manchester United, all interested in his services.
According to the source, PSG is already in negotiations with Felix’s representation. The French giants are considering signing the attacker during the upcoming January transfer window as part of their ambitions to strengthen their striking unit.
Atletico Madrid, for their part, has refused to authorise any sale for Felix. PSG and Bayern Munich approached them about a sale multiple times throughout the summer, while Manchester United pondered bidding €130 million.
Atletico Madrid, on the other hand, had no intention of selling their greatest attacking asset, preferring to pay the player’s €350 million release clause.
However, much has happened since then, and it is claimed that Felix’s connection with the club is currently strained.
As a result, a departure from the Civitas Metropolitano is not out of the question in the near future, especially with PSG and Bayern refusing to relent in their chase.
The outcome of Felix’s condition may be determined by the 2022 FIFA World Cup. A strong performance in Qatar might help him force his way back into the Atletico Madrid lineup or give the club an advantage in negotiating his January move.
