Manchester United legend, Patrice Evra, has advised the club against signing Atletico Madrid forward Joao Felix.
Evra believes Felix is not the right player Man United need right now.
Felix is keen to leave Atletico Madrid this January transfer window.
The Portugal international has been linked with a host of top European clubs, including Man United and Chelsea.
“I love Joao Felix and I loved what a great World Cup he had,” Evra told Betfair.
“I’m quite surprised that things have not worked out with Diego Simeone at Atletico Madrid, but he is a fantastic player.
“If he does move to the UK, he will enjoy playing in the Premier League in any team. I don’t want to talk him up as a target for Manchester United because whenever we talk about United targets, they never end up signing.
“He’s an excellent player and if he’s not happy at Atletico, the Premier League will welcome him with open arms.
“We need to replace the 20 goals from Cristiano Ronaldo, so it’s logical that we need another attacker. We can play Martial, Garnacho and Rashford, but we need a killer, someone who lives for goals.
“I don’t care if they perform well, I just want them to score goals. That is why I don’t think Joao Felix is the right type of player for United right now.”
