Joao Felix’s stance on Atletico Madrid exit amid massive interest

Joao Felix is ​​set to leave Atletico Madrid in 2023, sources have confirmed to 90 Minutes.

Felix joined Atletico in 2019 in a sensational move when they paid Benfica in excess of £100m, making him the second most expensive youngster of all time.

Things went well at the start of his time in the Spanish capital and he helped them win La Liga in 2021. But in recent days, things haven’t gone as planned, falling down the pecking order and losing a starting spot under Diego Simeone.

The 23-year-old, who has not officially asked for a move, is growing increasingly frustrated and considering his options. His representatives – including Jorge Mendes – are now investigating options for him.

90 Minutes are told that a number of clubs will be ready to make a bid for Felix. However, as it stands these offers will come as initial loans, and it remains to be seen whether Atletico will consider such an option.
