Mercato: Luis Enrique claims João Félix from PSG

30/06/23 15:43 by Fabien Borne

Future coach of PSG, Luis Enrique has asked his managers to recruit João Félix, according to the Spanish press.

Back at Atlético Madrid after an unconvincing six-month loan spell at Chelsea, João Félix is likely to change his tune during the summer mercato, as his relationship with Diego Simeone has deteriorated in recent months. And while the 23-year-old Portuguese striker has been little sought-after until now, Spanish media outlet Relevo reports that Luis Enrique has asked PSG to recruit him.

The Spanish coach is due to sign a two-year contract with PSG next week, and is keen to call on João Félix's talents. A deal which seems to have a good chance of success, given that João Félix's well-known agent, Jorge Mendes, is very close to PSG, where he has already placed Marco Asensio and Manuel Ugarte this summer, two operations which should soon be made official.

A few hours ago, João Félix "liked" Fabrizio Romano's Instagram post announcing Luis Enrique's imminent arrival at PSG. Could this be a sign of his readiness to join Paris?
