Man Utd and Arsenal put on red alert as Joao Felix transfer clause makes deal a formality
Atletico Madrid are supposedly ready to allow Joao Felix to pass on the Spanish capital borrowed to a Premier League club insofar as the Financial Fair Play costs of his agreement are dealt with by the opposite side.
A former Brilliant Junior winner, things haven’t precisely gone to anticipate the Portugal international at the Wanda Metropolitano and he has attempted to legitimize the shocking €126million sticker price he showed up with.
Diego Simeone’s side are planning to recover around £8million in advance charges, as well as Felix’s wages settled completely however there would be no legally binding commitment to purchase. As things stand, two Premier League clubs are more intrigued than most.
- Manchester United’s stance on acquiring Marco Reus as the transfer window nears its close.
- Oleksandr Zinchenko issues a caution to Manchester City supporters after losing his huff with former teammates.
- Comparison of Manchester City’s wage bill with Manchester United and Liverpool FC supports Pep Guardiola’s argument.
- Cody Gakpo desires a Liverpool ‘accident’ and addresses a position shift in play following his transfer.
- ‘Blue is my favorite color,’ says Chelsea player despite reports he could leave the club this month.
One of whom is league pioneers Arsenal, who while doing very well at the highest point of the table will have worries over the reality their supernatural forward Gabriel Jesus is sidelined for the forseeable future after going through knee medical procedure.
The other party supposed to be sharp is Erik ten Hag’s Manchester United, who view 23-year-old Felix as a likely replacement for his compatriot Cristiano Ronaldo who left Old Trafford in dubious conditions a month ago.
Both of the previously mentioned Premier League goliaths gloat the sort of monetary power that implies taking care of the expense of Felix’s compensation and the £8m in credit charges would be more than attainable.
Arsenal are presently driving the face for his mark, though on a transitory premise. Felix is believed to be discontent with how much game-time he has gotten under Simeone as of late and with Jesus crocked, the Emirates is an objective he’d probably see a lot of minutes.
Toward the beginning of December, Atletico CEO Miguel Angel messenger Gil Marin caused Felix to have frustrations and was convinced to dismiss a proposition from the Premier League’s defending champs Manchester City.
“The reasonable thing is to think that he is leaving, although I would love him to continue,” Gil Marin admitted. “But that is not the player’s idea. He is the biggest bet the club has made.
“I think he has the highest level in the world, but because of his relationship with the coach, the minutes played, his motivation…the reasonable thing to do is to consider his departure if an offer comes in”.
Simeone has recently been forced to face questions over Felix’s future, to which he hit back: “I want Atletico to win, that’s my sole focus. Then what has to happen will happen. No one is indispensable and things will be as they have to be.
“He had a good World Cup, he participated in goals. Hopefully, we can have the Joao of the World Cup…I hope we can give him the peace of mind and joy to show what he demonstrated in the World Cup, which was very good.”
