Atletico Madrid president Enrique Cerezo says that Joao Felix will remain with the club, amid interest from Manchester United and Barcelona.

Atletico Madrid have reportedly ruled out an exit for their attacker Joao Felix, who has attracted interest from Manchester United and Barcelona.

Felix has scored 10 goals and provided six assists in all competitions for Atletico this season, with Diego Simeone's side able to wrap up the La Liga title with a win against Real Valladolid on the final day of the campaign on Saturday.

Man United wanted to sign the Portugal international last summer and it is believed that the Premier League club would come back to the table again in this transfer window.

Barcelona are also interested in Felix and a potential swap deal involving Antoine Griezmann returning to Atletico has recently been reported.

However, Felix is expected to stay at Atletico as the club's president Enrique Cerezo told reporters: "There's no way [Joao Felix] leaves. He has to adapt, but when he takes off he'll be one of the most important players on the planet.

"Players aren't machines; they have good days and bad, and he'll have many glorious afternoons at this club."

The 21-year-old has a long-term contract at the Wanda Metropolitano running until 2026 after he joined the capital outfit in 2019, and he has gone on to make 75 appearances for the club, scoring 19 goals.
