Atlético de Madrid: behind the announced departure of João Félix

Yesterday, the Madrid press expressed the desires of the young Portuguese from Atlético elsewhere. Not so surprising information. Explanations.

The future of João Félix (22 years old) at Atlético de Madrid is more dotted than ever. Bought for 127 M € in 2019, the Portuguese international (20 caps, 3 goals) was supposed to embody the next generation at Wanda Metropolitano. But today, socios colchoneros are especially delighted with the return to the fold of Antoine Griezmann.

Was this a consequence of the information published yesterday in the columns ofAS ? Still, João Félix did not participate in Atlético’s crazy night against Porto (3-1). Announced on the departure by the Madrid daily, the Lusitanian seems to be living his last hours in the Spanish capital. As a reminder, AS has indeed said that the player wants to pack up and that a departure in January is possible.

Atlético is actually very seller

This Wednesday, the radio Cadena SER revealed the underside of this file. “Everything starts from the match in Mestalla (against Valencia, on November 7, editor’s note) when Jorge Mendes (the player’s agent) gets in touch with the club to request his departure. Cholo (Simeone) brought Griezmann back to try to force the departure of João Félix », said one of the media’s journalists, Javier Matallanas.

And that’s not all. This version contradicts yesterday’s information that Atlético was opposed to a sale. “Atlético told him that if he presents him with a good offer, he will let him go”, continues the journalist. “He has to find another project because it’s not working for him. We are losing a wonderful player. But El Cholo would rather lose Félix than other players ”, concluded the media. Unless the situation turns around, João Félix is ​​living his last months (or weeks) at Atlético.
