Chelsea have been told that Joao Felix does not want to play at Atletico Madrid any longer
The young Portuguese star is regarded very highly in the game but has been unable to hit the heights that many had hoped for during his time at Madrid – which has led to rumours he could leave.
According to recent reports on the Daily Mail, the club are exploring the idea of signing Felix on loan until the end of the season as Graham Potter has been hunting for possible signings with Felix’s name popping up on his list.
Now – Spanish football expert Fernando Kallas has told Sky News sports that Felix no longer wants to stay at Madrid: “Jorge Mendes has spent the entire night trying to negotiate because Felix doesn’t want to play in Madrid anymore.
“The relationship between him and Simeone is broken and there is an exodus of Atletico Madrid players who want to get out of Simeone’s control.
“The thing is, Atletico Madrid paid a lot of money for Felix so they want something in return so we are talking about £15m until the end of the season, for six months, – so it’s a lot of money.”
