“PSG will go for Joao Félix if they can’t retain Mbappé”

PSG is already moving a tab before the possibility of Kylian Mbappé leaving the club next summer to Real Madrid. The parisian painting has in mind to go for Joao Félix, which has a termination clause of 300 million euros at Atlético de Madrid.

Eduardo IndaIn his weekly visit to El Chiringuito he revealed it exclusively: «It is a difficult operation to undertake. PSG would try to go for the most promising young man in Europe: Joao Félix ». “It is difficult to get him out of Atlético because he has a clause of 300 million,” added the director of OKDIARY in the sports space presented by Josep Pedrerol.

Joao Félix has been in the sights of PSG for some time. Last January, when Atlético de Madrid negotiated with the French club to sign Edinson Cavani, Nasser Al Khelaifi asked that an option for the Portuguese striker be put in the transfer, something to which the rojiblancos flatly refused, as and as Eduardo Inda reported last January.

Now, with the passing of the months, the non-renewal of Kylian Mbappé is closer and in this situation, PSG has to look for a replacement for the world champion with France in 2018. The favorite in the Parisian entity is Joao Félix, whom they see as the key player on which to build their next project. They will not have it easy since Atlético de Madrid does not want to sell their new star, but PSG will try if Mbappé leaves.

Joao Félix has a buyout clause of 300 million and in the PSG they value paying them with the money that will enter by Kylian Mbappé, figures that estimate that they will be around 150 and 200 kilos. Despite considering the possibility of paying the clause, Nasser Al Khelaifi is also aware that the economic crisis generated by the coronavirus could lead Atlético de Madrid to accept an offer of around 200 million, allowing the rojiblancos to win around 70 after having paid 127 to Benfica in the summer of 2019.
