Midfielder Bruno Fernandes has already backed Portugal teammate Joao Felix to fulfil his potential amid ongoing reports linking him with a move to Manchester United.
Felix, who scored one goal and grabbed two assists in four appearances for Portugal at the World Cup in Qatar, is being strongly linked with a move to Old Trafford. The Reds are poised to prioritise the addition of a striker and the 23-year-old is one of the players who has been most frequently linked with solving that particular problem.
United, as reported by the Manchester Evening News , are poised to head down the route of bringing in a striker on loan next month, as opposed to investing big money in a permanent addition. The club is likely to recruit a striker on a permanent basis in the summer instead.
Therefore, a loan move for Felix should not be considered unrealistic. The versatile forward has struggled for regular opportunities at Atletico Madrid this season, often being restricted to cameo roles off the bench, and there has been plenty of speculation to suggest that the Spanish giants would be prepared to let him go.
United are in desperate need of adding a fresh source of goals to their ranks and Felix, despite having only scored 15 times since the start of last season for Atletico, could add a freshness to Erik ten Hag’s attacking options. If Felix was to secure a loan move to Old Trafford next month, he would link up with fellow Portugal internationals Diogo Dalot and Fernandes.
