Flocking to Twitter, Manchester City fans have had plenty to say after a claim emerged on Tuesday involving Atletico Madrid sensation Joao Felix.
The 21-year-old burst on to the scene with former club Benfica before he left for La Liga, bagging 15 goals and seven assists in the Portuguese top flight over a head-turning 2018/2019 season (WhoScored).
Atletico soon snapped him up and Felix has now spent the past two years at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium under manager Diego Simeone.
Now, sharing news on the exciting young attacker, Eurosport journalist Dean Jones has explained that his future in Spain seems ‘uncertain’ amid City’s long-standing interest in the player.
It is also explained that Atletico want Sky Blues star Bernardo Silva who is now being heavily linked with a move away from the Etihad Stadium and is apparently keen to leave (Eurosport).
While City are generally not open to swap deals involving Bernardo, one involving Felix could be a different case.
The La Liga side’s interest in City’s star may present the opportunity for an exchange, and flocking in reply to City Xtra on Twitter, many Sky Blues had plenty to say on the matter.

Man City fans flock to Felix claim
“Might be the only good swap deal we can have if Bernardo really want to leave. Joao under Pep could be mental”
“I beg, this is the only way I’ll be happy if Bernie goes”
“Please make it happen, if Bernardo forces his way out this is the best deal we can get. Joao Felix can play as a striker or Cam, he’s really good with the ball and creative. He can be our next De Bruyne.”
“that’s a swap deal I want to see… joao cancelo bernardo silva out – joao felix saul niguez in”
“Now we are talking……if Bernardo is to leave City then Felix in return from Madrid is not a bad deal in fact on the contrary it’s a good deal…. because we get a false 9 striker(Guardiola style) & then we can buy grealish as a Bernardo replacement.”
