Speaking to Sport TV, he said: “The way of playing with Portugal and then at the club is different. When the conditions are favourable, things go better”
Atletico Madrid CEO Miguel Angel Gil Marin confirmed earlier this week that Felix is up for sale due to a lack of game time and a relationship with manager Diego Simeone. The Portugal international has started just five La Liga games so far this season.
Speaking to the media, Marin said: “João Felix has top level but because of his relationship with Simeone and game time… we feel that makes sense to consider potential bids to sell him”.
Nevertheless, Felix is a talented player and has been doing a great job for Atletico Madrid at the ongoing FIFA World Cup. He has made three appearances in the tournament so far, registering one goal and two assists.
Manchester United, Chelsea, Juventus, Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain have all shown interest in Joao Felix’s transfer in recent weeks. According to Marca, Atletico Madrid have set an asking price of €100m for Joao Felix ahead of the January transfer window.
