The Portugal worldwide has yet to reach 100 looks in his 3 seasons in the Spanish capital, and has just revealed flashes of sparkle in a protective Atletico side.
Felix has actually had a hard time to enter the beginning lineup at the Wanda Metropolitano lately, with Antoine Griezmann, Angel Correa, Matheus Cunha and Luis Suarez – who has actually been related to a reunion with Steven Gerrard at Aston Villa just recently – all chosen by supervisor Diego Simeone.
And Spain-based press reporter Ruben Uria has actually exposed on radio program Carrusel Deportivo that the forward would preferably like to leave Atletico, and Barcelona are waiting in the wings.
Barça remain determined on finalizing Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund this summertime, however know the monetary dedication it would require to land him. With the club still not yet over their monetary battles, they are taking a look at alternative choices too.

But there stay doubts over Felix’s quality due to his standing with Simeone and failure to pin down a location in the beginning lineup for the Rojiblancos.
The Argentine coach is indifferent about Felix’s future, however Atletico CEO Miguel Angel Gil Marin desires the 22-year-old to remain and is identified to keep ahold of him.
Manchester City have actually been greatly related to a relocation for Felix in the past however no reference was made from them in this report.
