MADRID – Atletico Madrid burned down the competition for Joao Felix . According to "Record", the Spanish club will pay the 120 million euro clause to ensure the sports performance of the 19-year-old baby phenomenon that exploded during the last Europa League with a film archive hat-trick in Benfica-Eintracht Frankfurt . The player was specifically requested by Cholo Simeone who considers him the ideal substitute for the departing Antoine Griezmann.
Joao Felix is only 19 years old but is considered the heir to Cristiano Ronaldo at home. He can play in any position in attack and has a technique that allows him to start even behind the points. It is the classic number ten that can also be used as a fake nine, as is fashionable in recent times.
According to "Record", Atletico Madrid burned the competition thanks to the decision to pay the rescission clause of the Portuguese baby phenomenon. Joao Felix was also in the crosshairs of Juventus but the Bianconeri wanted to take him without paying the huge termination clause, deemed off-market for a player who is just 19 and still has everything to prove internationally.
Atletico Madrid would have been able to convince the boy by offering him a maxi salary of 6 million euros net per season. A huge figure but not a record because even in our country, see Donnarumma at Milan, there is a young man who receives a salary of this magnitude.
In the case of Donnarumma there were endless controversies not only for the salary claimed by the porter but also for his imposition of buying his brother and paying him a salary of one million euros per season. A figure out of the market for a player who was destined to be the third Milan goalkeeper. In short, the Donnarumma brothers, from that moment on, cost seven million euros per season at Milan.
