Tracked by Manchester United, Joao Felix will join the Red Devils on one condition: the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo.
If the tension has subsided for a few weeks at Manchester United, the future of Cristiano Ronaldo still remains a huge question mark. The five-time Ballon d’Or, holder this weekend against West Ham (1-0), recently acquired a huge villa in Portugal. Enough to revive the rumors around a probable return of Ronaldo to Sporting, the club which revealed it to the whole world.
His departure this winter or at the end of the season could also facilitate the arrival of another Portuguese. According to information from The Express, the Red Devils are very interested in the profile of Joao Felix, but will only position themselves once the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo has been recorded. Arrived in the ranks of Atlético Madrid in 2019 against a record amount of 126 million euros, Felix will never have succeeded in winning under the orders of Diego Simeone. Relegated to the Colchoneros bench by Antoine Griezmann, the 22-year-old striker risks leading the next transfer window. It remains to be seen whether CR7 will leave him his comfortable superstar chair at Manchester United.
