The Athletic of Madrid made an important bet to compete by the Champions, but now has to reform a project that derrumba. This summer will leave Diego Godín, Antoine Griezmann, Lucas Hernández, Juanfran, Filipe Luis and perhaps also Rodrigo Hernández and some more, what looms seriously with moving away to the team 'colchonero' of the fight by the titles. If there is not tarpaulin in the window estival, could pay very expensive.
With so many pending needs, few weeks backwards, Diego Simeone explained the profile that looks for for the forward. The Cholo commented that in Wanda Metropolitan will be difficult to see to a star consecrated, since the intention is to keep to Diego Coast and Álvaro Morata and give space to some youngster to consolidate it "like the Griezmann that arrived of the Real Sociedad". In spite of that this opened the door to a promise to low cost, the second condition could not to fulfil.
In Portugal ensure that the rojiblancos have made an offer by Joao Félix, that fits in the first parameters but, of course, does not go to have an affordable price. The one of Viseu has a clause of 120 million euros, and in the Stadium gives Light already have launched a warning to navegantes warning that it is tied until 2023 and that no will leave him escape, and that in any case, would not value proposed underneath of this figure.
It is thus that the 'Diário give Manha', that publishes this information, ensures that the Benfica has refused this attempt of the Madrilenian, since the quantity that put on the table was 'hardly' of 80 'kilos'. To face a signing of such magnitude, the athletic entity would have to reinvertir to the complete what will obtain by the traspaso of Griezmann -that also will leave crediting an exact clause to the one of the luso-, an extreme that seems that it does not finish to convince.
The beaux of Joao Félix will not have it easy for ficharle
To finish to complicate the operation, the Benfica even denied recently that they had arrived offers by the crack, by the one who admitted to have answered to questions and approaches but without formal meetings to negotiate. Besides, the greater guarantee for the 'embodied' is that the forward is convinced of his permanence, something that nowadays can be determinant to retain him several seasons more.
"I think that my destination will dictate it the time. I am well here. I am very happy, loves me the club. I adore to the fans. I want to take advantage of the moment, play, amuse me doing what likes me, and afterwards, over time, the things suceden of course. I am very happy in the Benfica", valued Joao Félix in an interview, confirming that for the moment by his head does not happen a change of airs.
