Facing a series of conflicts with coach Diego Simeone, striker Joao Felix decided to leave again after returning from Chelsea on loan. The Portuguese star then joined Atletico’s big rival, Barcelona.
Here, Felix is enjoying a memorable time as an important part of the Catalan giants’ squad. After 8 appearances, the former Benfica talent contributed 3 goals and 3 assists.
With this impressive performance, Felix is highly appreciated by Barca and they plan to open negotiations to buy him outright in the 2024 summer transfer window.
As for Felix, according to sources from Sport, He is also willing to refuse all offers to continue wearing the red and blue striped shirt. However, Barca will have to spend a fee of 75-80 million euros to close the deal.
The above number is too high for the La Liga champions in the context of their being in a financial crisis. Therefore, they will consider more feasible options to convince Atletico.
