At FC Barcelona, Joao Felix is a player who has long been admired
Even club president Joan Laporta has openly acknowledged that he recently attempted to sign the Atletico Madrid forward.
Felix’s career is at a crossroads because he has no interest in continuing to play for Diego Simeone’s Atletico Madrid. His second half of the previous season loan stint at Chelsea accomplished little to advance his career, therefore the Blues decided against a permanent deal.
As Felix waits for a decision about his future, AS is saying that the international from Portugal still harbours ambitions to play for Barcelona. That, however, is currently regarded as a “impossible dream” due to a number of problems. First off, despite having previously admired Felix, Barça’s financial predicament prevents them from considering a move for the former SL Benfica wonderkid.
Additionally, the 23-year-old does not seem to have a place in Xavi’s tactical plan. According to the source, Barcelona almost acquired Felix from Atletico Madrid in January 2022. The dynamic forward was to be split between the two clubs under a contract that had been agreed upon, but the Rojiblancos changed their minds.
Felix’s dream to play for Barcelona does not now appear to be possible, at least not right away. The Ligue 1 winners are considering the Portuguese international as a replacement for Kylian Mbappe should the latter sign with Real Madrid this summer, thus a move to PSG may be in the works for him.
