Felizx would be a very decent squad man for us, but given his probable view of himself there's no chance he would come to United to be a squad man.
Even Homer nods mate, don't take it too hard.I think this was a wrong move by Pochettino. Felix wasn't played in his best position at Chelsea and even under bad management and toxic atmosphere, he still showed his class.
However, I understand why poch would say no because he was forced nkunku on him and his team requires a lot of work ethic of-ball. Nkunku plays a role similar to felix and I don't see how both can fit in the same team especially when chelsea are trying to trim their squad.
Felix would have done well behind the striker with a player like oshimen, kane or vlahovic in front of him. And two double pivot behind him like ugarte/kante and Enzo.
Nkunku may turn out to be a much better player in that role, so it may turn out a brilliant move. However, what is chelsea lost, could be a united gain. I would welcome Felix at United. He can play as a false 9 and we can have a very dynamic front 4 or 3 in our front line. Chelsea has let go of many great player before and I wouldn't be surprised if Felix joins that list
PSG would be good for him especially if they are still playing two strikers next seasonIf Atlético maintain the same demands, it’s very hard to think of clubs that are realistic destinations, even on loan if they’re paying a huge fee and covering his full wages. PSG for one, but I’m not sure he is a Campos signing.
Yeah, a full season loan for Felix would probably cost somewhere north of £30M overall counting loan fee and wages.If Atlético maintain the same demands, it’s very hard to think of clubs that are realistic destinations, even on loan if they’re paying a huge fee and covering his full wages. PSG for one, but I’m not sure he is a Campos signing.
Arsenal would be the best fit for him out of all the major clubs imo but got Trossard instead in January. Don't see how he could be effective at Man. United with Bruno Fernandes drifting into similar areas of space, does it work that well for Portugal when both start?I think he cleared showed glimpses of what he is capable of at Chelsea. Had some nice games and showed that their is quality their to be unlocked.
I feel like the kid has been put in some awful football situation and he is also partly to blame.
Neither Atletico or Chelsea have played him in his best position and while at atlético the problem was he was playing for a very pragmatic coach, at Chelsea he was playing for a dumpster fire of a club.
ETH plays the type of football Felix coukd express himself in and I would not be surprised if he got the best out of him.
It is very clear Felix has a lot of football ability in his feet.
Felix is better than Bruno now. Sometimes I think I'm watching a different sport to some.Actually think he's top class and probably would improve us even if he was to replace Bruno. He just needs consistent games and he'll do great things as a second striker/AM.
It’s just amazing that teams fall for it, the track record is alarmingBenfica has a great "infrastructure" for this.
A kid is good, their pals in newspapers hype him to the moon, deluded fans on social media do the same, and Mendes gives them a hand in the end.
I think he’s really just chosen the worst possible teams for his development.Someone described him as an aesthetics merchant on Twitter. Quite a nice way to sum it up, so far.
I do think he was very good at Benfica just before he made that stupid decision to join Atletico. And he made another stupid decision to join Chelsea in disarray too. Is Mendes really his agent?
Lindelof as wellIt’s just amazing that teams fall for it, the track record is alarming
Gaitan, Andre GomesC Guedes, renato Sanches , Félix, Darwin, jury is still out on Enzo.
You would think these team would learn…
