Revealed: Man United’s stance on January Joao Felix swoop


An insight into the chances of Premier League giants Manchester United formulating an offer for Atletico Madrid star Joao Felix has been forthcoming late on Sunday.

Chatter surrounding the future of attacker Felix has of course come back to the fore in a major way over the course of the last week.

This comes on the back of widespread confirmation that the Portuguese has made clear his intention to depart the Wanda Metropolitano, with the powers that be at Atleti more than happy to acquiesce to his demands.

Speculation, in turn, has quickly begun to spread, regarding where exactly Felix could end up next.

Though his stint in Spain’s capital, overall, has proven a disappointing one, the 23-year-old remains a supremely talented young footballer, with the potential to develop into one of football’s finest attackers.

And now, as alluded to above, an insight into the stance of one club long linked with a move for Felix has been forthcoming online.

The info comes courtesy of transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, and centers on Manchester United.

United are one of the clubs to have been most heavily linked with Felix of late, with Erik ten Hag’s public admission that the Red Devils are on the lookout for reinforcements up top on the back of Cristiano Ronaldo’s exit having only served to further stoke the fire.

A January swoop on the part of the English heavyweights, though, currently looks altogether unlikely.

This comes with the aforementioned Romano having confirmed that though the powers that be at Old Trafford expressed a keen interest in the former Benfica man during the summer, their eventual big-money deal for Ajax standout Antony all but brought an end to the chances of a bid being tabled.
