FC Bayern's preparations for the new 2022/23 season are in full swing.

A player from Atletico Madrid is apparently in focus.

Munich – The transfer poker has long been in full swing: At FC Bayern Munich, a transfer period that is causing a stir seems to be imminent.

After Thomas Müller's contract was extended and the first new signing is already fixed, Robert Lewandowski's apparent change plans are the big topic.

Meanwhile, a 22-year-old Portuguese is also said to be on FC Bayern's list: Joao Felix.

Name: Joao Felix

Age: 22 (born November 10, 1999)

Position: hanging tip

Club: Atletico Madrid

Market value: 70 million

FC Bayern: Joao Felix in the sights of the record champions

According to Sky Sports UK, those responsible at FC Bayern should have Joao Felix in their sights.

This is nothing new: the Spanish newspaper

Marca

had already linked the 22-year-old offensive player with FC Bayern in March 2022.

In 2019, FC Bayern also went empty-handed: Felix, who was still a shooting star at Benfica Lisbon at the time, moved to Spain.

Atletico Madrid paid a record sum for the then 19-year-old: 126 million euros.

He was supposed to replace Antoine Griezmann who eventually moved to FC Barcelona.

Focus on Felix: He has already scored one goal against FCB in the Champions League

Should Felix possibly serve as his successor in the event of a change from Lewandowski?

The 22-year-old, who won the Golden Boy Award in 2019 and often acts as a hanging striker, has not been able to keep up with the goalscorer's values ​​so far.

Felix is ​​a different type of player than Lewandowski, not a typical nine.

In three seasons with Atletico, Felix has scored 21 goals and provided 11 assists in 82 La Liga games.

In the Champions League, the offensive man had two assists and seven goals, one of which he scored against FC Bayern (2020/21 season).

For comparison: In the past 2021/22 season, Lewandowski netted 35 times in 34 Bundesliga games alone and gave four assists.

Felix, who also plays for the Portuguese national team, has been out injured since April.

He suffered a hamstring injury in the 2-1 home win against Espanyol Barcelona on Easter Sunday (April 17).

In the last game (May 22) of the current season against Real Sociedad, the offensive player no longer plays a role.

Joao Felix to Bayern?

Contract at Atletico probably an obstacle

However, a move to Säbener Straße is likely to fail, especially due to his contract with Atletico Madrid.

This runs until June 30, 2026. Even if FC Bayern were to sell Lewandowski, Felix, whose market value is estimated at 70 million euros, would hardly be affordable.

According to a report by

Sport Bild

, Hasan Salihamidciz only has a limited budget for transfers.

A change from Ousmane Dembele seems more likely.

The Frenchman's contract with FC Barcelona expires.
