Man United keeping close tabs with No.7 Portugal international


Man United are keeping a tab on Atletico Madrid forward Joao Felix. The 22-year-old forward has not been able to make his mark at the Wanda Metropolitano since his arrival, and Los Colchoneros are contemplating cashing in on the attacker.

The Red Devils reportedly had an offer knocked down by Atletico Madrid this past summer as they did not want to part ways with one of their most prized assets. Man United are quite well stocked in the attacking department, but the possible departure of Ronaldo will create a big void, and only a marquee signing would be able to plug the gap.

Martial’s recurring injury problems have been a matter of great concern for the Red Devils, while Marcus Rashford’s inconsistency has been a key reason behind Man United’s recent struggles.

La Liga giants paid a club-record £113m transfer fee to Benfica to welcome Portugal international to Madrid, and they will likely look to recoup the entire transfer fee if they are to let the footballer leave the Wanda Metropolitano.

Reports have suggested that Joao has an enormous release clause in his current deal, and any team interested in making a deal would have to honour the same. In addition, Atletico Madrid still owe Benfica a huge chunk of the aforementioned transfer fee, and any money they receive from the sale will be served to the Eagles, mostly as a part of the deal.
