The 23-year-old Portuguese, who was recruited for a very large sum by the Colchoneros, never justified his transfer. This is why the Madrid club accepted Chelsea’s request for a paid-up loan in January 2023. In the midst of the winter transfer window, the London club gave the Blues €11m on a six-month loan.
João Félix, sent off three games for his Chelsea debut, has only played 5 games for the English club, but his adaptation seems perfect. In front of the media, the Portuguese sent a simple tackle to Colchoneros coach Diego Simeone, praising Chelsea’s attacking play.
It’s clear that her future is written far beyond the Wanda Metropolitano.
Alvarez instead of Felix?
According to the information he conveyed chiringitoFor his part, Atletico Madrid is considering Argentine Julian Alvarez. Should João Félix be sold this summer, which is on track, the Colchoneros will receive a small jackpot for top scorer recruitment. And the 23-year-old Argentine seemed the right target.
The prolific Norwegian Erling Haaland (33 goals in 34 matches) blocked him at the forefront of the Citizens attack. The 2022 world champion is the replacement for the former Borussia player this season (10 goals in 31 matches), under the orders of Pep Guardiola. . The former River Plate striker may be tempted by the prospect of finding him a place at Atletico Madrid, but it is far from certain that Manchester City would agree to part with their young player, especially as Erling Haaland’s mid-term future looks set to be at the club. Very uncertain.
Note that FC Barcelona is also looking for the profile of Julian Alvarez, as part of a loan.
