Cristiano Ronaldo has marked an era in modern soccer as he was one of the greatest players during the last years. The Portuguese attacker was said to have many successors on the last months, as he is already 35 years old and thinking about retirement is something that he will have to do one day.
One of those top forwards who is set to be the replacement of Cristiano in the future is Joao Felix. Even though he doesn’t have yet the physical conditions of CR7, he is Portuguese and at his national team they expect him to be the one gaining important titles in the near future.
Joao is just 21 years old and specialist think about him as one of the best players of the incoming generation. Atlético de Madrid paid the fortune of $130 million for him to Benfica on July 2019, and he has a contract signed with the club until June 2026. Nevertheless, there are some conditions that make us think that the scenario may change sooner.
Felix has been experiencing some problems with Diego Simeone, as the Argentinian head coach send him to the bench during the last matches of Atlético de Madrid. Rumors in Spain now say that he is thinking on making an historical move to another club in the country and FC Barcelona and Real Madrid are the only two ones who could be able to make such a signing.
