Atletico Madrid urged to rethink plans for Chelsea loanee Felix
Atletico Madrid urged to rethink plans for Chelsea loanee Felix

Chelsea are on the verge of missing out on a deal to permanently sign Joao Felix this summer from Atletico Madrid.

The winger who is currently on-loan could return to La Liga, given there is no buy option within his loan deal.

Ex-Rojiblancos director Javier Vidales believes that the Portuguese will learn from his time at Chelsea and return stronger for Atleti.

Despite reports of having issues with their coach Diego Simeone, Felix is tipped to shine again for the Madrid team.

“Atleti are a club that works like a family,” he explained to Record.

“The coach will not do anything that goes against the will of the club’s leadership.

“The coach decided to loan out Joao Felix with the agreement of the board. Both Simeone and the club’s owners are aligned with a single objective: to make Joao Felix perform better, both in a sporting and a financial sense.

“Loaning him to England is part of a plan to show Joao that football has many more paths than the ones he has in mind. Joao may end up getting it into his head that football can be more demanding, less controlling, something in which everyone attacks and everyone defends.

“Simeone wants Joao. The dressing room wants talented players, that’s why they want Joao. Andrea Berta, Atletico’s sporting director, was the one who showed the most that he wanted Joao Felix at Atletico.

“The stars are aligning for Joao Felix to return and succeed.”
