Barcelona submitted a loan proposal to Atlético de Madrid by João Félix. You mattresses are considering, but the deal is unlikely.
With the clock ticking towards the end of the transfer market summer window, FC Barcelona attempt a last-minute coup. The Catalans submitted a proposal for loan by João Félix until the end of the season.
This is not the first time that Barcelona is interested in the former SL Benfica footballer. However, with the departure of Leo Messi and the injury of Sergio Agüero, the Portuguese’s name regains relevance at Camp Nou.
João Félix, 21 years old, continues to recover from an ankle operation and it hasn’t been Diego Simeone’s choice this season.
The proposal presented by Barcelona does not involve any kind of payment to Atlético de Madrid, not even a call option.
In Spain, the newspaper Sports world advances that the deal should not materialize, as the striker is considered too important for the mattresses.
“João Félix is a very important football player for us”, said Atletico Madrid source, quoted by the Spanish newspaper.
Atlético paid 126 million euros to Benfica in the 2019/20 season. Last season, Félix scored ten goals in 40 games played.
Another condition for the business between Barcelona and Atlético de Madrid is Edinson Cavani. Manchester United wants to get rid of the Uruguayan, they can’t find a place for him after the signing of Cristiano Ronaldo. Taking this into account, the South American striker will have been offered to Barcelona.
