The striker is a hot property in the transfer market with several top clubs chasing him.

The month of January will bring in the new year and the transfer market will also open with it. Several transfers are likely to take place in the winter window with clubs trying to reinforce their squads in order to achieve their respective objectives. Joao Felix is one of the many players who are inching closer to a move in the upcoming days.

A lot of footballers made the headlines during the FIFA World Cup 2022. These players will be on the target list of elite clubs across Europe. In the context of the Portuguese attacker, he is likely to leave Atletico Madrid with several suitors lining up to get his signature.

A player of his quality will certainly aid any club that manages to recruit him. A loan deal with an option to buy is a realistic option with Felix still bearing a massive price tag. Keeping his quality in mind, here are the five clubs that can sign him in January 2022:

FC Barcelona

Joao Felix wants to leave Atletico Madrid after running out of patience with Diego Simeone. In a scenario where the player prefers to stay in Spain and play in LaLiga, FC Barcelona can be a good destination for him. The playing style of the club suits the player and he will add to the depth of the team.

Furthermore, with Memphis Depay inching closer to the exit door, the club could replace him with Felix. A loan deal is not out of the question. The two clubs have traded players before, most notably Luis Suarez and Antoine Griezmann.

Paris Saint-Germain

Paris Saint-Germain has a habit of making sensational transfers and hogging all of the limelight. The club is linked with Joao Felix as it aims to win the Ligue 1 and the UEFA Champions League

The French giants have the financial strength to land Felix. His inclusion in a squad that boasts players like Kylian Mbappe, Lionel Messi and Neymar could spell trouble for their opponents. 

Newcastle United

Newcastle United has extremely rich owners. The club has the financial might to land any elite superstar and it is about to flex its muscles in the transfer market. Joao Felix could be the poster boy for their evolution into a contender for top-four places in the Premier League table.

The Portuguese star would relish the chance to be the centre of a new sporting project at NUFC. Apart from a loan with an option to buy, Newcastle United has the resources to outrightly buy Felix in the winter transfer window. His asking price at the moment is approximately in the region of €50.00m-€100.00m.

Chelsea

Chelsea is building a strong team under the new ownership. Graham Potter, the manager, is getting the backing of the club to recruit high-quality players from the market. Christopher Nkunku is already on the brink of joining the club.

Multiple reports from England have pointed out that Chelsea has emerged as one of the strong contenders to recruit Joao Felix in the winter transfer window. 

Manchester United

Manchester United needs to recruit a player in the attacking department due to Cristiano Ronaldo’s sensational interview and the resulting termination of his contract before the start of the FIFA World Cup 2022. There are several players that the club is considering and Joao Felix is high on the list according to reports.

The Portuguese international would settle easily in the team with fellow countrymen Bruno Fernandes and Diogo Dalot already there. A loan deal is a likely option with MUFC not in the position to spend heavily after doing so in the summer transfer window.
