In a recent report, Defensa Central mentioned that Real Madrid have been offered a chance to land Atletico Madrid ace Joao Felix by the player’s agent, Jorge Mendes. It has been revealed that Los Blancos have been handed an opportunity to seal a move for the Portugal international next year.
Felix’s Inconsistent Season In Spanish Football
Felix is having a campaign of mixed emotions at the Wanda Metropolitano as he has struggled to be consistent with his offensive numbers for the Madrid club. The Viseu-born talent has banged in four goals and picked up three assists in 18 matches for Los Blancos this season across all competitions.
The 23-year-old has seen most of his appearances coming off the bench which explains why he is only averaging 1.6 shots, 0.7 key passes and 0.4 dribbles per game in La Liga. He has distributed the ball relatively well in the final third after completing 75.8% of his attempted passes in the Spanish first division (stats via whoscored).
His current deal with Diego Simeone’s side will expire in 2026. Hence, it won’t be easy for Real Madrid to engineer a move to sign him next year. Plus, Atletico are unlikely to sell him to one of their main rivals in La Liga.
Should Real Madrid Boss Carlo Ancelotti Move In For Felix Next Year?
Felix excels at creating space for himself to get a few strikes in on target. He is a good finisher in the final third when he is playing with confidence on the field. Furthermore, the Portugal international can also create some decent chances in and around the opponent’s penalty area and is a decent dribbler with the ball as well. He mainly operates as a secondary striker but can also lead the line on his own or play on the left wing if needed.
However, Real Madrid will have to pay a mammoth fee for him if they want to have any chance of signing him. Ancelotti would be better off moving in for someone else as Felix is currently not playing his best football.
Still, there is no denying that the Portuguese talent has got the potential to become one of the best players in his position someday. The wise move for the Madrid giants would be to wait and see how Felix progresses before determining whether to go in for him in the future.
