The Portugal international has tried to push aside the speculations surrounding his future at Atletico Madrid.

Joao Felix

has had a crucial role in

Diego Simeone

’s squad when he met the back of the net 10 times in 40 matches last season.

However, speculations suggest that he has been targeted by

Barcelona

for a move away from the Estadio Wanda Metropolitano before the next campaign starts.

Notwithstanding a swap deal with Antoine Griezmann being possible, the 21-year-old denied rumors of a departure.

I’m still an Atlético player, I have a contract and I’m happy there”,

he told an interview with

Marca

.

“Now I’m focused on the national team, because we have an important competition to win, and I think we are candidates to do that.”

The Portuguese forward is confident to form Fernando Santos’ squad for this summer as they plan to protect their European title.

Ex-Real Madrid legend Cristiano Ronaldo will lead the line with the help of Felix and Diogo Jota.
