Barcelona are working on a plan where they can convince Atletico Madrid to sign Felix towards the end of the season. The 23-year-old forward has netted three goals and provided three assists this season.
A Barça source told SPORT, “We have the entire season to prepare a proposal that allows us to keep Joao Felix. We are very happy with his performance and he is a player that is very popular in all areas of the club.”
Barcelona will show good commitment to secure Joao Félix’s presence in the team for the upcoming season. He also sacrificed a big chunk of his salary by agreeing to lower his salary at Barcelona this season.
Barcelona would be negotiating with Atletico CEO Miguel Angel Gil Marin, who would be keen on recouping most of the €127 million they spent on him. Reports add that Los Rojiblancos would seek at least €80 million.
