Manchester United have had a large €130m (£110m) offer for Joao Felix rejected by Atletico Madrid, based on reports in Spain..
United manager Erik 10 Hag he likes to strengthen his attacking choices before the transfer window closes as the uncertainty surrounding Cristiano Ronaldo’s future continues.
Spanish publication AS claim United have created a massive offer for Ronaldo’s Portugal international teammate Felix..
But Atletico Madrid have rejected the approach of theirs, based on the article.
It’s reported that Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone views Felix as the team’s foremost player.
As an outcome, Atletico are unwilling to promote the 22-year-old, that has a release clause of €350m (£295m).
One of the more highly rated talents in European football, Felix evolved into the fourth most expensive player in history as he joined Atletico in a club record €126m (£106m) move from Benfica in 2019..
He’s rather struggled to meet his massive price tag in Spain, scoring twenty nine goals in 112 games because of the club.
Though he was a part of the side which received the La Liga title under Simeone within the 2020 21 season.
Based on the report, United have been satisfied with Felix’s performance in Atletico’s pre season win over the Red Devils.
Felix scored the one objective of the fight to hand Simeone’s side a 1 0 win in Oslo, Norway..
It’s not initially Felix is linked with a move on the Premier League.
Liverpool and also Manchester City have in the past associated with the forward, who’s scored 3 goals in twenty two looks for the Portuguese national side.
Though a move to English football seems unlikely, with Felix reportedly “happy” at Atletico.
If United have really launched a move for Felix, it will be an amazing change in approach from the Premier League club this transfer window..
While 10 Hag is interested in a brand new forward, United are associated with significantly less expensive targets.
United yanked from talks to sign Bologna forward Marko Arnautovic after having an £11.2m bid rejected by the Italian club.
The Red Devils were also associated with Red Bull Salzburg striker Benjamin Sesko, who’s rather agreed a deal to sign up RB Leipzig following summer, then Stuttgart forward Sasa Kalajdzic..
