Man United have been in contact with Atletico Madrid about the transfer of Joao Felix.
With a new manager comes new ideas and tactics. Ralf Rangnick’s style is completely different to that of any previous Manchester United manager.
The German will want to add players that fit his brand of football, though doing that while only in charge for six months may prove difficult.
Nonetheless, that isn’t stopping the media from all over the continent linking the Red Devils with new names. Yesterday, AS (Thursday print edition), translated by Sport Witness, added Joao Felix’s name into the mix.
Apparently, the Portugal international didn’t return to Madrid with his teammates and instead, stayed back in his homeland to watch his brother in UEFA Youth League ation.
On top of that, his future with Atletico Madrid remains up in the air, while the player’s environment have been ‘already studying various alternatives’ to try to convince the La Liga giants to allow the attacking midfielder to leave.
AS also add that four clubs are in the picture to sign the star; with United one of those sides.
It’s stated that United are one of the sides to have ‘already asked’ about the availability of the talented 22-year-old. The other sides are Liverpool, Arsenal and Newcastle United.
Felix is someone who would fit the mould of the sort of player that Rangnick has tended to look at signing. The German prefers to bring in young players and mould them into one that fits his image.
The Portugal international is still young enough to do exactly that, while he gives off the impression as someone who’d thrive in the 4-2-2-2 system that our new boss is trying to implement.
