Joao Felix seems to prefer moving to Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) rather than the English stage.
France’s ‘Get French Football News’ said on the 16th (Korean time), “Italian transfer market expert Gianluca Di Marzio said that Felix wants to play for PSG. They said there was,” he reported.
After the appointment of manager Diego Simeone, Atlético has established itself as a strong opponent of the two major Spanish La Liga mountains, Real Madrid and Barcelona. In fact, Atlético has achieved significant results, such as winning La Liga twice, winning the European Football Federation (UEFA) Europa League (UEL) twice, and finishing runner-up in the UEFA Champions League (UCL) twice.
However, the results until the first half of this season are disappointing. At least in La Liga, it is in third place after Real and Barcelona, but in the case of UCL, it was eliminated at the bottom of the group stage. If they secured even 3rd place, they could have headed to the UEL tournament, but since they were in last place, the European competition itself disappeared this season.
The early dropout from the European competition is expected to have a negative impact on the finances. This may cause some players to leave the team. Felix is also one of the leading candidates. Felix joined Atlético from Benfica in the summer of 2019. At the time, Atletico were in need of a replacement as they sent Antoine Griezmann to Barcelona.
As a result, Atletico paid a huge transfer fee of 127 million euros (approximately 176.5 billion won) and succeeded in signing Felix. Felix, who continued to be the starting pitcher until last season, has been going back and forth between starting and replacing this season. Rumors of a feud with manager Simeone were also raised. 메이저사이트
The team that initially showed interest in Felix was Manchester United. This summer, when Cristiano Ronaldo’s whereabouts were unclear, he was mentioned as a replacement. As Ronaldo and Manchester United’s recent partnership ended, transfer rumors re-ignited. In addition to Manchester United, English clubs such as Arsenal and Aston Villa are keeping an eye on Felix.
However, transfer market expert Di Marzio insisted: “PSG are clear candidates. Felix wants to play there. It is unlikely that he will go to the recently mentioned Arsenal. If he leaves, PSG are likely.” Currently, Felix’s transfer fee is estimated to be around 100 million euros (approximately 139 billion won).
