Arsenal receives a boost in their pursuit of Portuguese star’s signature

Arsenal has been handed a boost in their bid to land Joao Felix as it seems his relationship with his current manager at Atletico Madrid cannot be repaired.

The attacker was one of the most promising youngsters in the world when he played for Benfica before earning his big money move to the Spanish capital.

Atleti plays a defensive style of football, which does not seem to suit him and he has struggled to get chances at the Wanda Metropolitano this season.

It has caused problems between him and his manager and the club’s owner Gil Marin has now admitted the attacker wants out.

He said via The Sun:

 “The relationship between the coach and him is not good, nor is his motivation.

“The most reasonable thing is to think about his departure, although I would love him to stay. But it is not his will.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Felix is one of the world’s most talented attackers and he clearly needs to play in a more attacking team to thrive.

This development hands Arsenal a good chance and we need to act fast to beat his other suitors to his signature as soon as possible.

But he will not come cheap, so we must be prepared to pay a huge fee before we can successfully add him to our squad.

  1. Athletico can demand €130M all they want but no club on the planet will pay that. He wants to leave and it has been made so public, heck the CEO of the club has confirmed that, therefore I believe their hand has been weakened in that respect regardless of the fact he still has a long-term contract and my hope is that they will agree to something like a loan deal(Loan fee included) with an option/obligation to buy for something in the region of €60M-€70M. As I have said before he would be a perfect fit in our system and I believe he would be interested in making the move.

    1. It’s quite ridiculous, isn’t it? Cake and eat it comes to mind. They want to shift him now while he retains some value because it’s never worked for him that well in Simeone’s system and now they have fully fallen out with each other. Be like us demanding 30-40 mil for Auba when we sent him off to Barca, just not happening.

  2. Begs the question why did he sign for Ath Madrid in the first place? Everyone knows they are a defensive oriented team and how the manager sets them up to play. Did Felix expect something different?

    Obviously money was a factor to him over style of play, not sure if this is worthy of a red flag. I admit I don’t have more than a casual knowledge of the player, but public fallouts like this raise a lot of questions about the player, IMHO.

  3. Top talent no doubt about it, very similar to Jesus in my opinion, the problem is at some point Jesus will return.
    Having two high value similar striker at the same club won’t look smart in a few months time, given we have other pressing positions to fill.

    We could do Madrid a favor while filling a gap at the same time by a loan deal
    That’s the best option in my opinion

  4. A top talent but temperamental at times and doubt whether Arteta would agree to this deal. also the fee is too high considering the fact that the player doesnt want to play for AM anymore.
