Reports suggest that Joao Felix’s time at Atletico Madrid is over and this news has been welcomed by Chelsea, who are hoping to sign the 23-year-old on a permanent basis. Felix joined the Blues on loan in January and has since made an impact, scoring in the 1-1 draw against West Ham last month. The forward has also indicated his desire to remain at Stamford Bridge beyond the end of his loan spell.
The chances of Felix joining Chelsea have been further enhanced by reports that his Atletico Madrid teammates are “sick to the teeth of him”. It is claimed that Felix is only in contact with two players at the club and the rest are not happy with his attitude. Miguel Martin Talavera, a journalist, stated that Felix only looks out for himself and his actions have had a negative effect on the team.
Since being sent off on his Chelsea debut, Felix has managed to score in the game against West Ham. This has led to fans making jokes about the fact that it was the only goal scored by the Blues in February. With just two wins in 15 Premier League games, manager Graham Potter is under pressure to turn things around. It remains to be seen whether Felix will be part of the long-term plans at Chelsea.
