Atletico Madrid striker Joao Felix has chosen a surprise Premier League club should he ever decide to leave the Wanda Metropolitano.

Felix joined Atletico Madrid in the 2019 summer transfer window for a fee north of €125m. He was unable to live up to the expectations placed on him, not once achieving double-digit goals in the league.

The 22-year-old was linked with a summer move to Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) and Manchester United, but ultimately stayed at Madrid.

PSG were watching him before Kylian Mbappe signed a contract extension with them, while United opted to sign Antony from Ajax instead.

I really hope João Felix forces a move in January. A guy who can play for any big club in the world is playing for a team that makes him defensive, which we all know he isn’t.

He still has four years left on his contract with the La Liga giants. But when recently asked to name the club he would like to join after leaving Atletico, Felix surprisingly named Leeds United.

“Leeds,” Felix said during a Q&A with influencer Adri Contreras (via le10 Sport).

Earlier this month, the striker was also asked about rumors linking him with a €130million move to Manchester United.

“Nothing came to me. The presidents deal with these things. I’m here,” Felix told Marca.

The Portugal international’s best league season came last term when he scored eight goals and assisted four goals in 24 appearances in all competitions. In all, he has scored 29 goals and provided 18 assists in 119 appearances for Atletico in just over three seasons.

Joao Felix and Atletico Madrid endure a slow start to the season

Joao Felix and Atletico Madrid haven’t had the smoothest start to the new season. The Portuguese started all but one Rojiblancos‘ eight appearances in all competitions so far, providing three assists in the process.

Atletico are currently seventh in the table after a recent loss to rivals Real Madrid. They have won three, drawn one and lost two matches this season in the league.

The club also had mixed results in the Champions League. They beat Porto 2-1 to start their European campaign this season but lost their next game 2-0 to Bayer Leverkusen.
