Manchester United has been looking for a new striker for the last two weeks after Anthony Martial suffered a hamstring injury in training and has been absent since then. With Cristiano Ronaldo as his only option upfront, Erik ten Hag has asked the club for another attacker because of the uncertainty of the Portuguese man’s future.

A lot of names have been circulating around this past week, but yesterday it was reported that the Red Devils approached Atlético de Madrid for the signing of Joao Félix. However, there was no information last night regarding a possible bid that the club could have made to the Spanish side for the young forward.

Today, one of Madrid’s famous news portal Diario AS, informed that Atleti rejected a €130 million offer from Manchester United for Joao Félix. The Colchoneros didn’t want to hear any bids for their player unless they would be willing to pay his release clause of €350 million, which would make him the most expensive player in history.

It is also being reported, that the 22-year-old striker is very happy in the Spanish capital since he believes this could finally be the best season of his career under his manager Diego Simeone. Last campaign, Félix finally became an important piece of his team’s system and showed what he is capable of. For that reason, his club wants to create their project around him.

You either pay the clause or get out

This past couple of days Manchester United tried to sign Joao Félix and Matheus Cunha from Atlético de Madrid, but in both cases, their club refused any offers that the Red Devils made unless they would be able to pay the players’ release clauses, which are way too expensive in order to protect them from any other clubs.
