Chelsea get green light to try and sign £125k-a-week star in January


Atletico Madrid Star Joao Felix has a desire to leave the Spanish giants in the January window – alerting the likes of Chelsea.

Felix came through the ranks at Benfica as a teenager and earned a move to Atletico in 2019 after smashing 20 goals in 43 games during his debut season with the Portuguese giants – numbers that alerted all the big clubs in world football

But although he has not produced those kind of numbers at Atletico – he has become a big part of the Spanish side and Felix’s talents have also seen him break into the Portugal team, where he has scored three times in 22 appearances.

There has been many rumours in the media that the likes of Man City and Liverpool are all ready to delve into that transfer kitty and try to secure a transfer deal for the talented attacker

Now – AS reports that the gifted young player has a desire to leave the club when the January window opens up.

But report also claims that a loan move appears to be the most likely option as there are no willing takers for his £125 million asking price.
