Man City sound out Atletico Madrid for Joao Felix

Manchester City have expressed interest in Atletico Madrid attacker Joao Felix.

After selling Leroy Sane to Bayern Munich, City are in the market for a replacement and have sounded out Atletico about Felix's situation.

The Athletic says City were keen on Felix when he was with Benfica, though baulked at paying his €120m buyout clause - something Atleti were prepared to do.

Felix is contracted to Atletico until 2026.

The Portugal international is unlikely to be allowed to leave Atletico for less than the €120m they shelled out for him.
