Ace of Atletico Madrid Joao Felix’s potential transfer to Manchester United is still frequently mentioned.
Erik ten Hag, the manager of Manchester United, has declared that he intends to bolster his attack during the forthcoming January transfer window.

Anthony Martial is the only senior, pure striker United still have on their roster after Cristiano Ronaldo’s recent departure. Despite this term’s impressive performances under Ten Hag, his fitness difficulties have limited him to just seven appearances across all competitions.

United has been compiling a list of potential forward line prospects in an effort to try to address that issue and add some goals to their forward line. United are interested in signing Napoli star Victor Osimhen, according to the Manchester Evening News, while players like Cody Gakpo of PSV Eindhoven and Goncalo Ramos of Benfica are still frequently linked with moves to Old Trafford.

Assisting Atletico Madrid Another name generating a lot of interest right now is Joao Felix. Given the uncertainties surrounding his future in the Spanish capital, he is frequently linked with a move to the United.

Felix, who on Saturday had the pain of losing to Portugal in the World Cup quarterfinals, joined Atletico in July 2019 for an outrageous £113 million transfer fee from Benfica. In 129 outings for the club, he has scored 33 goals, falling short of expectations in Spain.

The 23-year-old has made 18 appearances this season but only managed to score four goals. He also only scored 10 goals in 35 appearances the previous season, thus he is not the prolific scorer that United needs.

However, his track record in front of the goal may not come as a huge surprise to him or those who support Atletico. The reason for this is that Felix doesn’t think of himself as a natural No. 9 and instead prefers to play as a No. 10, directly behind a center-forward.

In an interview with The Athletic from earlier this year, Felix stated, “My best position is as the second forward. With a man in front of me, I’m “playing like a No. 10.”

Felix is not the solution to United’s goal-scoring problems because he has also had to play wide on the left wing on occasion this season. He has occasionally played as a natural striker, like Gakpo, but it is not his forte.

United needs to get a striker with a strong pedigree who has experience playing as a No. 9 throughout his career if they want to start scoring more goals as a team. They require a center of attention at the top of the field, one who has Antony and Marcus Rashford surrounding him for support.

Felix may be a brilliant football player, but his recent goal-scoring performance shows that he is not the solution. His final season with Benfica saw him have his most productive season to date, scoring 20 goals and dishing out 11 assists in 43 games.
