The Spanish newspaper AS reveals this Sunday that Miguel Ángel Gil Marín, general manager of Atlético de Madrid, and Mateu Alemany, general manager of Barcelona, had dinner last Thursday in a restaurant in the center of Madrid, after a La Liga event, and one of the subjects of conversation, perhaps the main one, was João Félix.
Writes the newspaper that the Portuguese international of colchoneros22, is a ‘forbidden dream of Laporta’, who have already tried to sign him this season on a loan with option to buy, a deal which the Simeone-coached club turned down.
It was the fourth conversation between the two clubs over the striker as Joan Laporta doesn’t seem to be giving up on trying to sign the Portuguese.
However, the player trained at Benfica and who cost 120 million euros in 2019, would only leave Wanda Metropolitano, writes AS, permanently and never on loan, that is to say that the Catalans would have to pay more than 100 millions of euros.
The Blaugrana’s financial situation is in jeopardy but club sources assure the sports newspaper that there could soon be the economic capacity to make some big signings.
According to AS, João Félix is considering the possibility of leaving Atlético de Madrid and sees Barcelona as a good destination to continue his career.
As a conclusion, the Madrid daily reveal that in the summer Madrid will receive generous offers to sign the No.7.
