Joao Felix could be on the move this summer amidst interest from Manchester United
Manchester United have been long-term admirers of Portuguese wonderkid Joao Felix.
The Red Devils were linked with a move for the 21-year-old over the last two summers. While we missed out on him on both occasions, there might be a window of opportunity this time around.
According to The Express, Atletico Madrid are willing to offer the player in an exchange deal for Barcelona star Antoine Griezmann. Whether United can take advantage of it remains to be seen.

Perhaps ironically, it was Griezmann’s exit from Atletico in 2019 that prompted them to secure Felix. Neither has succeeded in impressing at their new clubs and have been largely disappointing.
Much was expected of Felix when Atletico signed him in 2019. One of the best young players in the world at that time, the signing was seen as a coup of sorts.
Two years on, the Portuguese ace has scored just 13 times and has largely failed to settle in. Felix has made 13 appearances for the Spaniards this season, scoring 10 goals and assisting 6. (h/t Transfermarkt)
