Once more, here we are. Bayern Munich will continue to pursue forwards, and if anything, the World Cup season has lighted a flame. Joao Félix, a Portuguese star, is apparently leaving Atlético Madrid in January. Making him one of the most well-known players available during the winter transfer window.
According to Spanish reports, probable destinations are Bayern, PSG, Manchester United, and Chelsea FC Joao Felix is leaving Atletico Madrid.
It would be wise to treat everything at this point with a huge grain of salt. If it were true that Félix was pressing for a move right away, it would make for major news and he would undoubtedly get the eye of some of the top teams on the continent.
But if he genuinely does relocate during the colder months, Bavaria should be a highly improbable choice. Hasan “Brazzo” Salihamidi, the German giants’ sporting director, has insisted that they won’t make any changes in January. Remember?
The Félix camp is aware of this, but perhaps the Spanish media is unaware. Bayern, in any event, has some obvious defensive requirements. 50 million euros added to the attack? doubtful in fact.
Joao Felix’s performance in Atletico Madrid
The 22-year-old has shown boss Diego Simeone why Los Rojiblancos paid a club record £113 million to acquire him from Benfica in 2019 by scoring seven goals in his past eight outings. In his two and a half years in the Spanish capital, Felix has helped Atletico win La Liga, but the Portuguese player has failed to establish himself as a regular member of Simeone’s squad and has been linked with a transfer away in the upcoming summer transfer window.
The ex-Benfica starlet scored twice in a 4-1 thrashing of Deportivo Alaves upon his return to Madrid, putting them four points ahead of Real Betis in fifth place in the league standings. Felix is now beginning to live up to the expectations, and the spotlight is shining on him for the right reasons after he emphatically reclaimed his starting position.
