    And we reported earlier this month that they were willing to listen to offers for the Portuguese international forward.

    Felix, who joined the club in 2019 for around £113million from Benfica, has not been playing as regularly as he wants this term and his relationship with boss Diego Simeone has soured.

    That has led to United monitoring his situation as they plot a move.

    However, now Le Parisien has claimed that PSG chief Luis Campos is also preparing a move.

    The French publication claims that they are looking for a replacement for one of their superstar attacking trio Kylian Mbappe, Lionel Messi or Neymar.

    And they are hopeful that their relationship with agent Jorge Mendes, who also represents the 23-year-old attacker, will help them get a deal over the line.

    Mendes allegedly offered the ace to the Parc des Princes outfit over the summer.

    They were unable to do business then due to financial fair play rules following Mbappe’s bumper new package.

    Felix has made 18 appearances for Atletico this season, mostly from the bench, and has scored three goals.
