AC Milan dream of adding Atletico Madrid star Joao Felix to their ranks. The Portugal is on the market for €70 million.
AC Milan are expected to make important investments to strengthen the squad this summer. One of the most intriguing decisions will be that of the new playmaker. Brahim Diaz has been a shadow of his former self after a bright start and his purchase from Real Madrid is in doubt. Joao Felix could take his spot in Pioli’s eleven.
Italian journalist Enzo Bucchioni reports that signing Joao Felix is AC Milan’s summer dream. “Paolo Maldini and Massara have very clear ideas on how to build a squad able to compete in Europe next season.
Their dream is called Joao Felix. The Portuguese playmaker is not as central for Atletico Madrid as he would like. Atletico Madrid are open to sell him if they receive an offer of 70 million offer. Among other things, Simeone has set his sight on Dybala precisely to replace Joao Felix.“
Joao Felix is arguably having his best season with Atletico Madrid having scored 10 goals and assisted 6 in 35 appearances so far. Nevertheless, those numbers are far from his staggering records with Benfica. There is a general consensus that Atletico Madrid’s defensive mentality is not suitable to bring the best out of an elegant player like Felix.
After three seasons with Atletico Madrid, Joao Felix is reportedly open to join a new club at the end of the season. The lure of playing a key role for a young squad like AC Milan could be tempting for the 22-year-old Portugal international. The Rossoneri would add considerable talent to their ranks if the manage to secure Felix’s signature. Manchester City and Barcelona are also interested in the player.
