Atletico Madrid star Joao Felix is attracting interest from Manchester United following his loan spell at Chelsea.

The Portuguese was a top target for United at the beginning of the year, but they could not afford the loan fee to sign him.

Atletico wanted around €11m for a six-month loan. The La Liga outfit also demanded his wages to be paid in full.

Chelsea eventually paid the fee to land Felix, but the 23-year-old struggled with them, scoring four goals in 20 games.

The Blues are not interested in re-signing him this summer, but ABC claim that United could make an approach.

Atletico have opened the door for another loan deal for the Portuguese as they look to improve his valuation.

United have made contact with Felix's agent Jorge Mendes, and it is left to be seen whether they make an offer.

Newcastle United and Aston Villa are also interested. Felix prefers to play in the Champions League next term.
