It remains to be seen if an offer for João Félix that convinces Atlético Madrid will arrive this summer.
Marca report that Aston Villa are still interested in landing the Portugal international, while there is also a feeling that his former club Benfica may end up being the last-minute solution if a move hasn’t materialised by the end of the window.
Fellow Atlético forward Álvaro Morata is less of a problem because head coach Diego Simeone wants him to stay, as he knows that the lack of financial muscle to sign is going to make things more difficult if the Spain international leaves the Metropolitano. Morata is reportedly frustrated with his current situation.
Riquelme returns from loan spell
Rodrigo Riquelme’s future is also up in the air. The plan for the player who spent last season on loan at Girona is to stay at the club, but offers are coming in for the talented forward.
