After many efforts, Manchester United was able to solve the problem in the central striker position with a blockbuster contract for Rasmus Hojlund in the summer transfer window. However, coach Erik Ten Hag still lacks a quality plan to back up the Danish striker, in the context of Anthony Martial’s miserable decline.
Therefore, a source from Mundo Deportivo confirmed, Man Utd planned to recruit Joao Felix in the last market. Obviously, they only plan to ask for Felix on loan, and an official offer has also been sent to Atletico Madrid by the Red Devils. However, Felix himself actively rejected this proposalbecause he always had the desire to move to Barcelona.
The above source confirmed that joining Barca is really Felix’s dream, and he even accepted a salary cut just to move to Camp Nou on loan. As for Atletico, this is the second time they have temporarily parted ways with a contract worth 127 million pounds, after deciding to loan the striker to Chelsea last season.
