Atletico Madrid have reportedly reduced the asking price for Joao Felix in other to offload him as soon as possible, Newspremises has gathered.
Felix who is not given playing time after his fall out with the manager, Diego Simeone has now become top target for two English sides, Arsenal and Manchester United.
But a condition of the deal is that the buying club covers his entire wage until the end of the season.
The two English giants now have a better chance of of sealing an amazing bargain transfer for Felix.
Felix would certainly leave Atletico Madrid in January as the player’s relationship with manager Diego Simeone is at breaking point.
Arsenal and Manchester United are especially interested in the forward, while Chelsea are also said to be monitoring the situation.
Arsenal are in search of an attacking player following a long-term injury to Gabriel Jesus, while Manchester United need to replace Cristiano Ronaldo.
Atletico were asking for as huge as the €126million (£108m) they paid Benfica for him in 2019.
And since neither club are likely to splash that much cash on a single player, it seems that the La Liga side have realised they must lower their expectation.
The Daily Record reports that Atletico will allow Felix to leave on loan for a fee of just £8 million as long as the buying club covers his entire wage til the end of the season.
The 23-year-old reportedly earns just under £250,000-a-week.
