Man Utd, Man City target Joao Felix warms to 'Atletico Madrid project'

Benfica superkid Joao Felix is warming to a move to Atletico Madrid.

Manchester United and Manchester City are both chasing the Portugal international.

However, AS says Felix is attracted to Atletico's project, with his agent Jorge Mendes talking up the Madrid move to his client. The prospect of playing for Diego Simeone is also something he would welcome.

Atletico's board know they would have to pay his €120m buyout clause to bring Felix to Madrid this summer.

But despite the record fee, Atletico are prepared to cough up knowing the potential of the 19 year-old.
