Manchester City fans have been reacting to a post on Twitter which relays a report that claims Joao Felix‘s agent Jorge Mendes was keen for Portugal playmaker to join Guardiola’s side before his move to Atletico Madrid.

The 22-year-old Portuguese star became the Spanish club’s most expensive ever signing when he arrived in a £113m transfer from Benfica back in 2019.

According to a report from Portuguese newspaper Record, the player’s agent Jorge Mendes would have preferred his client João Félix to have joined Manchester City, as opposed to Atletico Madrid in 2019.

In the conversation, Mendes said: ‘The best thing for Joao Félix would be Manchester City for Guardiola . It will be the most expensive signing in Portuguese football.’

The 22-year-old eventually moved to Atletico for £113million from Benfica in 2019 but has since largely failed to make his mark on Spanish football. He has played a bit-part role over the course of this season for Diego Simeone.

There has recently been speculation surrounding the Portuguese, with Manchester City said to have made contact with Felix’s agent Jorge Mendes to discuss a possible deal.

However, a move for Felix this month has been described as untouchable and those close to the player have played down talks of any possible moves.

In reaction to the report shared on Twitter by City Xtra, many Man City fans have have been expressing their thoughts and opinions.
