Joao Felix has emerged as one of the most wanted commodities in the transfer market following his blistering performances in the FIFA World Cup.

Although the forward did not enjoy the best of starts to the season at Atletico Madrid, he made a solid impression in the World Cup, helping Portugal reach the quarterfinal stage of the competition.

Even though Portugal were shockingly knocked out of the quarterfinals by Morocco, Felix’s performances have not gone unnoticed. Many clubs have already lined to seal the services of the Portuguese international, who is expected to leave Atletico in January.

Arsenal, Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain are primarily the three clubs interested in Felix. The former SL Benfica starlet himself is keen on leaving Atleti, having struggled to make himself a prominent figure in Diego Simeone’s tactical setup.

A new report from Le10Sport (h/t Atletico Universe) has offered an update on Felix’s future, suggesting that the forward has already zeroed in on two clubs he would like to join in January.

The clubs in question are Premier League giants Arsenal and Manchester United. The report suggests Felix will choose either of the two English clubs, whereas PSG are seemingly out of consideration.

For Atletico Madrid’s part, they may also prefer the forward to join a Premier League club, who are in a position to offer more for the attacker. Manchester United, for one, are among the clubs determined to add new reinforcements in the attacking unit, with the Red Devils even prepared to break the bank.

The same goes for Arsenal, who need reinforcements if they are to continue their bid for the Premier League title during the second half of the campaign. But which among these two Premier League clubs end up getting their hands on Joao Felix remains to be seen.

Coming off a highly controversial game against Almeria, Real Madrid will now travel to Gran Canaria to take on Las Palmas tomorrow as part of the early kick-off.

Carlo Ancelotti spoke about the clash tomorrow, starting off by confirming his goalkeeper for tomorrow, “Lunin will start tomorrow.”

He also added that Madrid were looking to get back to their usual level after back-to-back poor performances, one of which included elimination against Atletico Madrid in the Copa del Rey round of 16.

“We are motivated to return to our best level after 2 bad games.”

The Italian gaffer also commented on the biggest football story in the world today, which was Jurgen Klopp announcing his decision to leave Liverpool at the end of the season.

“It’s quite surprising, I understand. Working for a long time with the same club and players lowers your motivation a bit. He’s doing a fantastic job at Liverpool.”

And of course, Ancelotti also spoke about the leaked VAR audiovisual, some of which are highly controversial for all parties involved. Barcelona coach and players have also commented on the same, in light of the Negreira case.

“They have talked a lot. Everyone knows what has happened in the last 20 years in Spanish football. The Civil Guard is carrying out an investigations. That is the real problem of Spanish football.”

Luckily for the manager and fans, all injured players — minus the ACL trio of David Alaba, Eder Militao, and Thibaut Courtois — are available. Jude Bellingham is suspended, however.

“Everyone is available now after the recent period of injuries.”

“Making up for Bellingham’s absence tomorrow? Brahim and Joselu are available options. They were able to show themselves after I relied on them as substitutes,” he added.

And as far as Militao and Courtois are concerned, both of whom tore their ACL early in the season, Ancelotti suggested that they could make their return before the season ends.

“Courtois and Militão both have the option to play this season. The recovery process is going very well, they are training on an individual level. It is February and these types of injuries last 6-8 months, so I think they will recover before the end of the season.”
