Manchester City have reportedly identified Joao Felix as a possible alternative to Harry Kane should they fail to make a move for Tottenham star.
City might use their want-away midfielder Bernardo Silva as a makeweight for one player who was targeted by the club in 2019, Felix.
According to the information of Dean Jones at Eurosport, Joao Felix’s situation at Atletico Madrid ‘seems uncertain‘ at present, and interestingly, the reigning La Liga champions are showing interest in signing Bernardo Silva – as previously reported by the Times.
The situation surrounding Bernardo Silva, according to Dean Jones’ report, aligns itself with the feeling in various other quarters: That the Portugal international is keen to leave English football and that Manchester City are ‘willing to let him leave‘ if a ‘suitable‘ offer comes in.
City are generally not open to any swap deal offers for Bernardo Silva this summer, due to finances being generated helping to go towards the likes of Jack Grealish and Harry Kane, Felix may, potentially, be a different case though, given the Etihad club’s long term interest.
