Disappointed by the performance of the most expensive transfer in its history Joao Felix, Atlético Madrid is ready to sell him at the next transfer window. The Portuguese is of interest in England but he could also do business for PSG.
As if the sum was laid directly on the shoulders of a man, an expensive transfer can weigh on a player for years. This is the case of Joao Felix at Atlético Madrid. The Portuguese from Benfica was bought by the Colchoneros for a total sum estimated at 127 million euros in 2019. The club’s most expensive transfer, it also represents the fifth highest sale in the history of football. A lot of pressure for someone who was not 20 at the time of the transaction. This was quickly confirmed on the pitch with disappointing performances with the Madrid club, especially given the purchase price.
Joao Felix, it’s a gift for PSG
Thus, the young Portuguese striker has never exceeded ten goals in a La Liga season since his arrival. Very good technically, he does not manage to be sufficiently influential in big matches, as evidenced by his only goal scored in the Champions League last season. Atlético is determined to part with it and restore a competitive attack line with the departures of Luis Suarez and Alvaro Morata.

According to the Sun and journalist Shay Lugassi, Atlético offered Joao Felix to many European teams including PSG, Tottenham and Chelsea. ” Exclusive: Joao Felix has been offered to PSG and several other clubs. Diego Simeone does not consider the player untransferable and his agent is in contact with several clubs. Departure is NOT excluded “, he posted on Twitter. Elected Golden Boy in 2019, Joao Felix remains a promising talent at only 22 years old. Put in good conditions, he would be a very good deal for PSG, especially since he can play anywhere on the line of attack. While Neymar is increasingly challenged, the Parisian club may have received his young replacement on a set.
