Manchester United: Joao Felix move being considered

Manchester United: Joao Felix move being considered - Manchester United News

Manchester United could make an approach for Atletico Madrid attacker Joao Felix in the coming weeks, according to reports from Spain.

The Lowdown: Felix on United’s radar

Erik ten Hag is likely to be keen on bolstering his current attacking options, especially with Cristiano Ronaldo ageing and told he can leave and Anthony Martial often out injured.

Felix has stood out as a target in recent months, with numerous reports suggesting that the Portuguese attacker could make the move to Old Trafford.

A fresh update has emerged which further suggests that the Atletico wizard could possibly be a United player in the near future.

The Latest: Bid incoming soon?

According to Spanish media outlet Cadena SER [via Sport Witness], Felix is back ‘on the mind’ of United and they could look to bid for him in a ‘matter of weeks’.

The report claims that, as Ronaldo and his compatriot share the same agent in Jorge Mendes, the situation could be easier to handle in terms of Felix replacing his elder international team-mate, which may potentially work in the Red Devils’ favour.

The Verdict: Undeniable quality

Felix is someone who could help to take United’s attack to another level, with the 23-year-old a hugely gifted player who has been described as ‘unbelievable‘ by former Atletico team-mate Kieran Trippier.

The Portugal international is capable of playing as number 10, out wide or as a central striker, and this versatility could further appeal to Ten Hag and his future plans, especially if Ronaldo leaves.

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

Felix has 50 goal contributions (32 goals and 18 assists) in 128 appearances for Atletico, highlighting his pedigree, and his peak years should still be ahead of him.

He could thrive in a United side with a greater attacking intent than Diego Simeone’s team, too, potentially getting more out of his ability at Old Trafford.
