Man United, Aston Villa set to battle for Atletico Madrid’s Joao Felix
Aston Villa have joined the race to sign Atletico Madrid forward Joao Felix in January.
Felix is set to leave Atletico Madrid in January with the club open to offers for the Portuguese international.
The 23-year-old has started just five of Atleti’s 14 La Liga matches this campaign, a development indicating how the winger has fallen out of favour completely under boss Diego Simeone.
With impressive performances posted for his country while on international duty at the World Cup, talks about a potential January transfer move has resurfaced with his agent Jorge Mendes on the lookout for interested clubs.
Atletico Madrid’s CEO, Miguel Angel Gil Marin admitted that the club’s record signing could be sold next month.
