The Spanish side are keen on letting Joao Felix leave this winter but not for a cheap price as they name outrageous tag
Chelsea, Manchester United, Arsenal and Bayern Munich will all be stunned to learn of price tag fixed on Joao Felix by a team claiming ready to sell.
Atletico Madrid are understood to be willing to let Felix leave as relationship with Diego Simeone isn’t getting any better but their price tag will now place a temporal barrier on his departure.
The Portuguese who is currently shinning at the World Cup, having helped Portugal advance into the Quarter Finals stage where they will battle Morocco, has netted just 24 times in 94 games for Atletico Madrid since arriving in 2019.
Atletico Madrid have now asked for €130m as they are now ready to offload the 23-year-old with Chelsea, United, Bayern Munich and Arsenal competing strongly.
The former Benfica winger could actually see his future delayed at the club as his price tag is considered too big to be coughed out by all the suitors.
Arsenal who have seen their fortune turn for good could however be willing to seal their record transfer deal, eclipsing Nicolas Pepe’s €80m move.
The project at Emirates Stadium has been going well since the beginning of the new season with the Gunners leading the race for the Premier League trophy. An addition of Joao Felix to Mikel Artera’s lineup will serve as a significant boost.
Bayern Munich are now understood to be no more in the race as they would rather settle for a swap deal for Christian Pulisic who will instead see them earn money with Kingsley Coman going the other way.

Bayern are not known to be big money spenders in the transfer market as they rather go for cheaper but better assets following the likes of Sadio Mane, Robert Lewandowski and so on. €130m is so off for the Bavarians.
Having sealed a €100m signing for Ajax’s Antony Santos, Man United could be back in the phase for another mega money signing with the Board fully behind Erik ten Hag who must prove a point after his treatments on Cristiano Ronaldo to force him out of the club.
United see Felix as a big addition and would be keen on landing him at Old Trafford but the price tag could be a problem if they decide not to spend as much as they did for Santos who is yet to fill the big shoes.
Atletico Madrid are waiting to learn of the suitors reactions before they can decide to keep Joao Felix, loan him or reduced his tag as they wish to see him leave this winter with the arrival of Samuel Lino just by the corner.
