Atletico Madrid shockingly lower Joao Felix’s price from £108m to £8m

 


Atletico Madrid have reduced the asking price of Arsenal and Manchester United target Joao Felix.

But a condition of the deal is that the buying club covers his entire wage until the end of the season.

The two Premier League sides now stand better chances of sealing an amazing bargain transfer for Felix.

The Portuguese forward is certain to leave the Spanish side in January as the player’s relationship with manager Diego Simeone is at breaking point.

The Liga side also need to get the World Cup star off their payroll to stay within Financial Fair Play regulations.

Arsenal and Manchester United are especially interested in the forward, while Chelsea are also said to be monitoring the situation.

Arsenal are in search of an attacking player following a long-term injury to Gabriel Jesus, while Manchester United need to replace Cristiano Ronaldo.

Atletico were asking for as huge as the €126million (£108m) they paid Benfica for him in 2019.

And since neither club are likely to splash that much cash on a single player, it seems that the La Liga side have realised they must lower their expectation.

The Daily Record reports that Atletico will allow Felix to leave on loan for a fee of just £8 million as long as the buying club covers his entire wage til the end of the season.

The 23-year-old reportedly earns just under £250,000-a-week.
