Despite the fact Man City seem to be well on the way to signing Joao Feix, Atletico have not lost hope in signing the Portuguese. If they manage it, the attacker could take over in terms of importance and youth which Torres, Aguero and Futre had in their day.

Among Atletico Madrid's plans ahead of next season is the signing of the young star Joao Felix, the thriving talent of Portuguese football. At 19 years old, the attacker has just had a magnificent season at Benfica and from making his Portugal debut in the recent Nations League. 

Nevertheless, it seems like Manchester City have got a firm grip on him since they would be willing to pay the 120 million euros which are in his buyout clause. At Benfica, despite the fact they are trying to do everything possible so that he stays for another year, they are now starting to be resigned to the fact they will lose the player. 

In any case, Atletico are not giving in and they will fight until the very end to try and sign Joao Felix, who Simeone sees as a perfect substitute for Griezmann. He warned that in the market, he was looking for a young player and with growth, something which has been common place in recent years in the Atletico strike force.

Apart from Griezmann, there were other attackers who were key players at Atletico at a very young age. It was the case of Futre, who arrived at 21. although he had already become a European champion. Years later, it was Fernando Torres turn. He made his debut at 17 and took on a major role quickly. 

Afterwards, Aguero came from Argentina and he was with Torres at Atletico for a season before 'El Niño' left for Liverpool. In his first season, he did not fulfill expectations, but afterwards he became very important and he left the Vicente Calderon a worldwide star.
