ATLETICO MADRID star Joao Felix revealed his favourite Premier League club and it is NOT Arsenal, Chelsea or Manchester United.
Felix has been linked with a sensational switch ahead of the upcoming January transfer window following some impressive displays in the 2022 World Cup.
The forward has admitted he is a fan of the English top flight but he apparently never rooted for the usual title contenders like the Gunners, the Blues or United.
According to Mundo Deportivo, the Portugal international admitted he supports Leeds.
However, the 23-year-old’s soft spot for the Yorkshire giants is highly unlikely to take him to Elland Road in the near future.
But Felix is still likely to leave Atletico after a reported fallout with manager Diego Simeone.
Atleti chief executive Gil Marin also conceded that the Portuguese ace wants to leave.
Marin told TVE: “[Felix] is the biggest bet this club has taken in its history. I personally think he’s a top talent, a world-class player.
“For reasons it isn’t worth getting into – the relationship between him and the boss [Simeone], the minutes played, his motivation right now – it makes you think that the reasonable thing is that if there’s an option that’s good for the player, good for the club, we can look at it.
“I’d love him to stay personally, but I don’t think that’s the player’s idea.”
HOW TO GET FREE BETS ON FOOTBALL
Arsenal, United and Chelsea are looking to take advantage of that opportunity that could see Felix moving on loan due to his hefty asking price.
The North Londoners are looking for a striker to replace star man Gabriel Jesus, who suffered a knee injury during the World Cup and will be out for three months.
The West Londoners need someone to spearhead their attack after Romelu Lukaku returned to Inter Milan on loan last summer.
And the Red Devils are still searching for someone to fill in for Cristiano Ronaldo after missing out on Cody Gakpo.
