Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak has spoken of the ‘huge talent’ of his new teammate Joao Felix, who signed this summer from Benfica.
The teenager made the landmark €126m switch from the Lisbon giants to Atleti this summer and has shone in pre-season with Diego Simeone’s side.
“We are still in pre-season but it is clear that he has huge talent,” Oblak told reporters.
“With talent like that he can grow into being a magnificent player, I am sure that this is the right place for him.
“He is going to progress a lot under Diego Simeone and he is going to learn a lot here. There is no doubt that he is a great talent.
“If he continues on the same path as he started, if he trains and keeps playing at the level he has shown then he will be a world class player, no doubt.”
Felix is the theoretical replacement for Antoine Griezmann – now at Barcelona – at Los Rojiblancos and is set to be the fulcrum of their attack next season.
