Manchester City have reportedly been warned against every possible move for Atletico Madrid star Joao Felix.

The Blues have been linked with the 22-year-old, but reports say he is “untouchable” with the Spanish champions.

However, the Portuguese playmaker would already have been at the Etihad had his agent Jorge Mendes had his way two years ago.
