Chelsea has announced that Portuguese forward Joao Felix has joined the club on loan from Atlético Madrid. Chelsea reached an agreement to bring Portuguese forward Joao Felix to Stamford Bridge for the remainder of the season on loan. The loan move costs Chelsea around €11m and his salary will be covered by Chelsea 100%.
According to Fabrizio, Felix will sign a contract extension with Atlético before his expected medicals with Chelsea.
Chelsea, who backed out from Enzo Fernandez’s deal with Benfica quickly, responded with an alternative in Felix, who is expected to move to London in the common hours for his medicals.
Felix joined Atlético Madrid for a record deal of 126 m from Benfica in 2019. The 22 years old has struggled since joining Atlético Madrid as Antoine Griezman’s replacement.
Chelsea continues to make additions to the squad to address the dwindling nature of the team.
