Emerging reports have claimed that English Premier League club Man United are considering making a move for Atletico Madrid forward as a replacement for Jadon Sancho this summer transfer window.

The Red Devils are not willing to meet the £100 million price set by German Bundesliga outfit Borussia Dortmund for the England international winger which means a deal might not happen between the two parties.

Joao Felix is now being considered for a move away from the Spanish La Liga outfit after spending one season with the club. He joined Atletico Madrid in the last summer in a deal worth £113 million.

It is understood that the Spanish outfit will not mind cashing in from the sale of the player who scored just nine goals and three assists for the club but the Red Devils must be willing to pay a fee close to what is being requested for Jadon Sancho by Borussia Dortmund.

English Premier League giants Man City are reportedly interested in the 20-year-old, who signed a long-term deal with Atletico Madrid but there has not been any concrete offer.

It is now unclear if the Red Devils will be able to meet the asking price of Joao Felix as he will not be available for cheap.

However, Joao Felix is not the only option the Red Devils are currently considering as Juventus star Douglas Costa and Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale are also being monitored.
