Manchester United have been boosted in their efforts to sign Atletico Madrid striker Joao Felix, with a new report claiming he wants to leave Spanish capital.
The Lowdown: Man Utd linked with Felix move
The Red Devils have strengthened their attack with the signing of Antony from Ajax but they could still do with a new central striker, considering Cristiano Ronaldo is approaching the end of his time with the club and Anthony Martial is injury-prone.
Now, a new update suggests that the Red Devils’ chances of signing the Portuguese starlet have increased further.
The Latest: New boost emerges
The report also adds that it is the 22-year-old’s ‘intention is to leave’, and although it isn’t specified if a January or summer exit is on the cards, Manchester United are again name-checked in the latest update.
The Verdict: Fantastic signing
While Felix may be struggling for minutes at Atletico by his usual standards, he remains a superb young footballer who has been described as ‘world-class’ by football talent scout Jacek Kulig.
Is Maguire good enough for Manchester United?
Yes, he's just having a bad time!
No, he needs to go!
With Diego Simeone seemingly not seeing Felix as a key player at the moment, United could even swoop in the January transfer window, giving their attack an immediate injection of brilliance and bringing him in as a long-term superstar signing.
