SAD: Chelsea’s Hope to land Joao Felix Crashes over huge loan fee

SAD: Chelsea’s Hope to land Joao Felix Crashes over huge loan fee.

Chelsea has been told that they will need to spend big to get the Portuguese and Atletico Madrid attacker Joao Felix on loan and this is not looking very good for Chelsea.


The Athletic reports that Felix’s agent, Jorge Mendes, has offered the player to a string of clubs, the most interested of which appear to be the Premier League giants.

Looking at how Chelsea play now they will need a very special reinforcement in their forwards force and Jao Felix is looking like the right person for the job.

What next for Joao Felix transfer saga
As January progresses, a game of brinkmanship will begin, with Atleti knowing that Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United all need forwards.


Arsenal, for example, did not have a single senior attacking option on their bench for their victory over West Ham.

Man Utd, meanwhile, are seeking a replacement following the mutual termination of Cristiano Ronaldo’s contract.

Chelsea, on the other hand, have struggled to find effective goal scoring all season and have fewer Premier League goals this season than Manchester City forward Erling Haaland alone.

But equally the Premier League sides are aware that the 23-year-old will push to leave.

“I believe he is a top, world-class player, but for reasons it is not worth getting into now, the relationship between him and the coach Diego Simeone is not good, nor is his motivation,” Atletico Madrid CEO Miguel Angel Gil Marin said in December.

“The reasonable thing is to think Joao Felix will leave. Although I would love him to stay, that is not the player’s idea.”

Joao Felix is valued at €34m by FootballTransfers, but his rather unique circumstances mean that what he actually leaves Atletico Madrid for could be wildly different.
