Speaking to TVE, Atletico Madrid CEO Gil Marin said: "Signing Joao Felix was the biggest bet the club has made in its history.

"I think he is a top world-class player, but because of the relationship with the coach [Diego Simeone], his playing time, his motivation...

"It'd be reasonable to analyse an option for him to depart if one arrives, although I'd love him to stay. But, that's not the player's plan."

Felix joined Atletico from Benfica in the summer of 2019 for £113 million, the fourth highest sum ever paid in football for a single player.

The 23-year-old, who was linked with Manchester United in the past, appears to be ready for a new challenge and could consider moving to the Premier League.
