‘Dizzying’ offer from Manchester United now more than enough for signing – Quick move wanted, €30m more than needed

Posted by

Manchester United have returned to the charge to sign João Félix from Atlético Madrid and are currently at the front of the queue for his signature.

That’s according to AS, who say that the forward is ‘determined to move’ and super-agent Jorge Mendes is ‘knocking on the necessary doors’ to make a deal happen in January.

The ‘auction is open’ for the forward’s signature and all roads point to England being his destination at this moment in time.

Manchester United have been ‘courting him’ for a long time. The 23-year-old is ‘very popular’ at Old Trafford and Atlético received a ‘dizzying offer’ of €130m for him in the summer.

However, the Rojiblancos ‘closed the exit door’ at that point, continuing to back the Portuguese player, who they bet big on in recent years.

That situation has changed in recent months as the player’s relationship with Diego Simeone has deteriorated and Atlético are now ‘willing to listen’ to offer in excess of €100m.

Things have also changed at Manchester United, where Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure has freed up a ‘significant salary’ and allowed them to do business in January.

They’ve been watching the forward at the World Cup, which has been a ‘showcase’ for Felix, who has put in some notable performances despite Portugal ultimately disappointing.

The ‘bidding is on’ for his for his signature now that the tournament is over for them and if Manchester United were to repeat their offer from the summer, it would be more than enough to get a deal done with Atlético keen on a quick sale.
