Manchester United want to sign Frenkie de Jong from Barcelona. However, with a deal tricky to broker, it’s possible the Red Devils will swoop for Ruben Neves instead. There are also reports that they are in the market for a few more players before the transfer window closes.
They’ve long admired Felix and were one of the teams eyeing the Portugal international back in the summer of 2019, when it became clear he’d be leaving Benfica.
So United would be wise to throw money, and Ronaldo, Atletico’s way to test their resolve.
While Felix has had his moments with the La Liga side, he’s still not fulfilled his vast potential - even though there are signs he’s finally getting to grips with what Simeone wants from him.
And United, with Ten Hag as manager, could be the perfect club for him.
