Paris Saint-Germain has set its sights on Atlético Madrid’s João Félix. The capital club needs a No. 9, and it seems Luis Enrique appreciates the Portuguese.
Spanish media outlet AS reported on Friday that the forward is “seduced” by the possibility of joining the Parisian club. Additionally, PSG aligns with Félix’s preferences.

While the preferences aren’t revealed, he likely desires a new challenge and the opportunity to compete at the highest level. The Parisian club’s financial capabilities and ambition to dominate domestically and Europe align with Félix’s initiatives.
Atlético Madrid has opened the exit door for Félix, indicating that they would entertain offers of around €100 million. While at Benfica, the Portuguese forward possessed exceptional technical skills, creativity, and goal-scoring ability.
However, it didn’t translate when making the move to Atlético Madrid. Still, Enrique might feel he has the tactics to get the best out of Félix. PSG will likely explore negotiations with Atlético Madrid to secure Félix’s services as the transfer window progresses.
The Parisian club’s financial resources could enable them to meet the Spanish club’s valuation, though negotiations and finding common ground will be critical.
