In Recent Remarks, Diego Simeone Would Not Rule Out Selling Joao Felix to Manchester United.
Regarding Joao Felix, Diego Simeone has provided Manchester United with conflicting information, which the club is now processing.
Felix is reportedly a serious target for Manchester United, and the Red Devils are fully aware of the circumstances surrounding his current situation in Spain, according to a report that surfaced not too long ago.
Felix has a strained relationship with Diego Simeone, the manager of Atletico Madrid, and he is dissatisfied with the role he is expected to play at Wanda Metropolitano.
Felix is considered as a viable answer despite the fact that the player is adamant about departing in January despite the fact that United has a scarcity and excessive ease in attack.
Despite this, Simeone did his best to dispel allegations that there was bad blood between him and the player on the Portuguese national team.
Additionally, Simeone spoke on Felix’s impending exit and reaffirmed his wish to keep the player with the club. Felix is expected to leave the club. Nevertheless, he did not completely discount the possibility of a sale.
“Joao is one of the guys who has scored the most goals out of all the strikers we have, other than the fact that he now has three,” the Argentine coach added.
“He has a goal, and we hope that he can continue to be with us and that he can play at the level that he has demonstrated so many times,” the coach said. “He has a goal.”
“And most importantly, to demonstrate that he serves a function and that we are dependent upon him,”
The comments made by Cholo might make it more difficult for United to sign the 23-year-old player.
This new development, coupled with Atletico Madrid’s insistence that their star player will only be allowed to leave for 130 million euros, which is slightly more than they paid for him from Benfica, will most likely alienate the 20-time champions of England. Benfica was the club that Atletico Madrid paid slightly more than they did for their player when they acquired him.
Felix was given a spot on the Portugal national team by Fernando Santos and will compete in the World Cup alongside Cristiano Ronaldo, Bruno Fernandez, and Diogo Dalot, all of whom play for Manchester United. Felix was given the call up by Santos.
After the tournament, it is expected that a decision will be made on his future plans and responsibilities.
