Juventus recently bought Arthur, so why not add some Gabriel Jesus to it, right? For now, Juventus are not carrying out large transfers but Juve buys Felix Correia as arming themselves for the future. The subject of the transaction was talented though disproportionately dear youngster.
Felix Correia may be associated with anyone completely which is why I am already presenting its characteristics. He is a Portuguese winger who was bought by Manchester City a year ago for 3.5 million euros.
OFFICIAL: Juventus have signed Félix Correia for €10.5m, paid over the next financial year. The player has signed a 5 year deal.

In the adult team of Manchester City, he did not even debut because he was immediately sent on loan to AZ Alkmaar, where he also played only in reserves. There he noted 7 assists, to which he scored 3 goals. So these are not good statistics but certainly not impressive, the more so because they were barely achieved in the youth team.

The more surprising is the fact that Juventus decided to buy it for up to 10.5 million euros. Jorge Mendes is responsible for the player, so much a high price should be seen mainly in his interest.
As you can see, some also say that such a large amount is caused by the desire to launder money. We will probably never know what really happened at such a high price and it seems to me that it will not be translated into results on the ground.
