Manchester United: Talks held with Joao Felix’s agent

Manchester United: Talks held with Joao Felix’s agent -Manchester United News

Manchester United have held talks with renowned agent Jorge Mendes over the signing of Joao Felix from Atletico Madrid, according to Fabrizio Romano.

The Lowdown: Felix on the move?

The 23-year-old has had a frustrating time at Atletico of late, with Diego Simeone’s defensive style arguably struggling to get the best out of him.

Felix has only been handed five starts in La Liga so far this season, scoring three times in the division, and he also netted once in four appearances for Portugal at the World Cup.

United are among the clubs to have been linked with a move for the attacker as Erik ten Hag eyes up new signings in the upcoming transfer window.

The Latest: Man United have ‘conversations’ over Felix

Speaking to GiveMeSport, Romano stated that United has discussed a possible move for Felix with Mendes, although no great progress has been made in that regard due to the financial commitment which would be involved.

The Italian said:

“In this case, it’s about the price because Man United have had many conversations with his agent, but at the moment there is no negotiation, no concrete negotiation because of the price.”

The Verdict: Is he what they need?

Felix is clearly a player of outstanding natural ability, having been described as a ‘special talent‘ by Atletico team-mate Alvaro Morata, but he may not be the ideal fit for United.

The Portuguese gem is more of an attacking midfielder or number 10 than an out-and-out striker, with the Red Devils requiring more of the latter after Cristiano Ronaldo’s exit left them with just one natural centre-forward in the senior squad.

Manchester United fans, do you remember who scored your first goal of the 21/22 season?

Signing Felix could mean that someone like Bruno Fernandes is possibly affected in the line-up, whereas the current United playmaker could thrive off having a top-class natural striker coming to Old Trafford instead in January or next summer.
