Barcelona have not given up on signing Joao Felix.
Spanish media ‘Football España’ reported on the 14th (Korean time), “Barcelona is considering a swap deal with Ansu Fati to sign Felix.”메이저사이트
Felix has been evaluated as a player who will lead the future of Portuguese football in the future. He was praised as the second Cristiano Ronaldo while proving his sharp breakthrough and goal-making ability.
He even managed to break through to the big clubs at a young age. Atletico Madrid signed Felix as the next-generation ace in 2019 for a transfer fee of 120 million euros (approximately 168.9 billion won).
He could not show the performance worthy of the transfer fee. Felix has rather slowed down his growth since joining Atletico. In his last season, he even clashed with manager Diego Simeone over playing time.
He didn’t do much at Chelsea either. He left Chelsea on loan to make a breakthrough in January, but failed to transfer completely, scoring only 4 goals in 20 games.
His future at Atlético is uncertain. Felix was not part of Simeone’s plans for the new season. Atletico are looking for a club to take him.
In the midst of this, he also made bomb remarks. In an interview last month, Felix said, “I want to play for Barcelona. It was a dream since childhood. If it comes true, it will be my dream come true.”
Atletico turned upside down. Atlético’s first-team players were reportedly very angry at Felix’s remarks and criticized him for being rude.
The transfer to Barcelona was not quick. Financially struggling, Barcelona could not afford to pay for Felix’s transfer this summer.
Felix’s trip to Barcelona was on the verge of misfire. Some reported that Barcelona’s leadership had given up on Felix’s signing for financial reasons.
It wasn’t true. According to this report, Barcelona requested a swap deal between Fati and Felix through Jorge Mendes’ agent, with whom he has a close relationship. Mendes serves as both Party and Felix’s agent.
The problem is the party’s doctor. Partey wants to stay at Barcelona this summer. The media commented, “In order for the swap deal to be concluded, the party must be persuaded to go to Atletico.”
