Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone has expressed his happiness over the performances of new signing Joao Felix in pre-season, and said that the player was adapting very quickly to the team.
Felix was bought by Atletico Madrid from Benfica after they triggered his release clause of around €126million, and are hopeful that he can replace the goals of Antoine Griezmann, who left the team for Barcelona.
The youngster has scored goals and provided five assists in the five pre-season games he has played so far, and the manager is happy with the performances and the way he is assimilating into the team.
"Joao has many capabilities. He is adapting very quickly to what the team needs," the Atletico coach told a news conference, according to Goal.
Simeone also touched on the possibility of Angel Correa leaving the club, and said that the player has been training with complete commitment.
"We are open to everything that can happen, transfer wise. There is nothing that can surprise us because obviously there is always something happening until the end so we have to be prepared for that," he said.
