I am not overly upset at us being used in such a manner. It means we're registering.

This for me. It's just nice seeing us being linked with one of the 'next big thing' type of player. Our profile seems to be on the rise.

Surely this can't be true?!

"Aston Villa are very well positioned to take Joao Felix.

Miguel Ángel Gil Marín, CEO of Atlético Madrid, is already negotiating with #AVFC ."
I hope not because he’s been under whelming at WC.

You hope we don't sign Joao Felix?

JFC.  A phrase I would never expect to read on a Villa forum.

For context, Atletico paid more for 19-year-old Joao Félix than Man City paid us for Jack.  The chances of him coming here, for anything other than an astronomical fee, are basically zero.  And if we DO have an astronomical fee to spend in January, I think I'd rather it went elsewhere.

He might not have developed into the global superstar they expected when they spent that money, but he's still a very good player, and I'd be stunned (and very pleased indeed) if he was a genuine possibility for us if it wasn't financially stupid.  Personally, I think it's just paper talk.

Yes, it feels like a bit of a daft link to me.  I won't be holding my breath.

I know he is quality but is he really what we need right now ?

One of the best young players in the world to take the place of Ings or Watkins?

Nah, hard pass from me.

Me too. Let's get some more Championship players in.

I’d love to believe that this is true. After all, what’s the point in appointing a world-class manager, if we are not prepared to be backing him with big bucks?  Having said that, this all appears a bit fanciful and a little ahead of ourselves.

Only way I see this as likely is if it's a loan with a hefty fee attached.

If his face doesn't fit at Atletico Madrid under Simeone, they pocket north of £15 mill for a year from the loan fee, say. And get his wages off the books.

There isn't a whole lot of money sloshing around in Spanish and Italian football, as we have seen with the desperate attempts to revive the European Super League bollocks.

If he's a Mendes player there's also a strong likelihood of tail wagging the dog. Hence Renato Sanches to Swansea on loan a while back and other 'odd' deals.

Wasn't that because Paul Clement still had a load of links at Bayern from when he was assistant manager to Ancelotti there, and Bayern trusted Clement to keep developing him?

Isn’t he more of a play maker than a centre forward. Good player though.
