The Red Devils are looking for a new striker during the current transfer window, and Felix is reportedly one of the top names on their radarThey have already proposed a loan of €4 million for the Portuguese star, covering his entire salary, but Atletico insists on €12 million to sanction his temporary exit

As a result, negotiations have come to a halt. Felix is said to be considering staying. Atletico Madrid are said to be impressed by his World Cup performance and recent league form

Felix to United appears to be an unlikely possibility. United want to fill the void left by Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure. Felix has been identified as a top target due to his versatility, but Atletico Madrid’s loan demands are excessive

The Spanish side wants a staggering €12 million fee for a loan deal until the end of May, as well as his €280,000-a-week wages covered during his temporary stint


The total cost of the loan transfer could be €18 million over a five-month period. United could take the risk, but manager Erik ten Hag recently warned the club not to simply burn money

United, in our opinion, will most likely play the waiting game with Felix. A deal appears unlikely at the moment unless Atletico is willing to lower their asking price for the player

A move could also be influenced by Felix’s performance at the Spanish club. His relationship with manager Diego Simeone has soured, but he was named to the starting lineup against Elche

Before the World Cup, the 23-year-old scored three goals in two La Liga games and continued his good form against Elche last week, scoring in a 2-0 win for Real Madrid side

Felix, who Alvaro Morata described as a “special talent,” has also been linked with Premier League rivals Arsenal. They are looking to fill the void left by Gabriel Jesus’ injury.
