Manchester United are leading the race to sign Atletico Madrid’s wantaway star Joao Felix, according to FourFourTwo.

The report adds that Manchester United have already lodged a transfer bid for the Portugal international.

The 22-year-old has been linked with big-money moves across Europe and doesn’t particularly suit Atletico Madrid’s style of play. His relationship with Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone is said to be beyond repair.

Felix became one of the most expensive players of all time when he joined Atleti in 2019, joining for a reported £115 million from Benfica and still has four years left on his contract.

Manchester United were in the running to sign Felix in the summer and even made a £113m bid for the star. It is believed the Red Devils have now made a move for the player ahead of the January transfer window.
