Atletico Madrid star Joao Felix has his sights on joining Manchester United during the January transfer window.

The Portuguese has been a long-term target for the Red Devils and they have the opportunity to sign him next month.

The 23-year-old has made it clear that he wants to leave the club and Atletico are ready to listen to offers of €100m.

According to Football Transfers, Newcastle United are interested in signing the former Benfica man, but he is set to turn them down.

Eddie Howe's side want to boost their Champions League pursuit with Felix, but the attacker has reservations over joining the club.

It is added that United are his preferred destination for January but it remains to be seen whether they make a move for him.

United are likely to make a marquee signing for their attack in January but the preference could be on landing Cody Gakpo from PSV.

The Dutchman could be available for around €60-70m.
