Joao Felix: Atletico Madrid forward opens up on Man Utd transfer interest

Joao Felix

Atletico Madrid forward Joao Felix claims he was never informed of any transfer interest from Manchester United during the summer.

The sensational €130 million transfer for the Portugal international was linked to the Red Devils, but a deal never seemed close to happening.

Furthermore, Felix admitted to Marca that he was unaware that Atletico had received a bid for him and insisted that he had no control over the situation.

When specifically inquired about United’s interest, he responded: “Nothing came to me, it’s things from the [club] president. I’m here [at Atletico].”

In light of Cristiano Ronaldo’s struggles at United and the upcoming World Cup, US media also questioned Felix about the player’s performance.

“Cristiano is always Cristiano, even if he is not playing,” Felix said. “It’s a honour for us to have him in the team. Even if he is 37, it’s always good for us to count on him.

“I think that the fact the team Manchester [United] is not doing well, that will not affect our national team and we’ll have a great World Cup.”
