Atletico Madrid chief executive Miguel Angel Gil has revealed that his club are open to selling Portuguese attacker Joao Felix.

The Portugal international is attracting interest from several European clubs and is reportedly keen on leaving the Spanish capital in search of diets team football.

And now, according to Atletico, they will listen to offers for their all-time record signing who is currently Portugal at the World Cup in Qatar.

Speaking about the situation with Felix on his way to Dubai for La Liga’s Assembly, Gil told Spanish television TVE via Sportsmail

“He is the biggest investment the club has ever made, and I think he is at the highest level in the world in terms of talent. 

“But for reasons that are not worth going into now – the relationship with the coach, the number of minutes he is playing, his motivation – the reasonable thing is that if there is an offer that is good for the player and the club, that we at least analyse it. 

“I would love him to continue, but that is not the player’s idea.’

The 23-year-old who joined Atletico Madrid for a €127.20m deal in July 2019 has fallen out of favour in the Spanish capital, making just nine starts in all competitions in this campaign, scoring four and assisting three.

Despite not being trusted at club level by Diego Simeone, Felix has played a key role in Portugal’s strong start to the World Cup, starting three out of four matches under Fernando Santos. He is currently linked to Arsenal, Manchester United, Bayern Munich and Chelsea.
