Atletico Madrid declines to give away João Félix to Manchester United

Manchester United

Manchester United wanted to sign the Portugal star Joao Felix, but Atletico Madrid rejects the offer. The English giants are back in the transfer window in search of new signings. Manchester United has a record of 20 League titles, 12 FA Cups, 5 League Cups, and a record of 21 FA Community Shields. The Red Devils have not only dominated in England, but they have also dominated in Europe as well. But, somehow the English side hasn’t been able to show their dominance in the Premier League in their last few seasons. The Red Devils last won their Premier League title in the 2012-2013 season. Red Devils desperately want to get their hands on the title. The most widely supported football clubs in the world didn’t get the start they were looking for. As back-to-back straight defeats from Brighton & Hove Albion and Brentford had struck Manchester United’s fans all over the World.

As a result, Manchester United’s manager has entered the summer transfer window. Their search has taken them all the way to the Spanish giants Atletico Madrid. Manchester United had kept their eyes on the Portuguese forward João Félix, but the Colchoneros have declined their offer.

Manchester United failed to sign the João Félix of Atletico Madrid

The 22-year-old young Portuguese forward plays for the La Liga club Atlético Madrid. Born in Viseu, the Portuguese started his senior career on the Benfica reserve team in 2015. Then moving to its senior side in 2018 and got his early breakthrough as their goalscorer. Félix’s performances sparked the interest of the Spanish side Atlético Madrid, who signed him in 2019 for £113 million. Making him the fourth-most expensive football transfer in the world. Since then, the Portuguese have been Diego Simeone’s trump card. Playing alongside Antoine Griezmann, Luise Suarez, etc. And now Manchester United approached the young talented Portuguese for £110m to join the English side. But Atletico Madrid has no intentions of sending the wonder boy away.
