Joao Felix To FC Barcelona Receives Green Light After “Unprofessional And Disrespectful” Interview

FC Barcelona is on the verge of completing a monumental signing as Joao Felix expresses his desire to join the Catalan club. According to AS, Atletico Madrid is open to a potential deal after the 23-year-old forward made explosive comments to renowned transfer market expert Fabrizio Romano.

Felix’s declaration sent shockwaves through Spanish football, stating, “I’d love to play for Barca,” in an exclusive interview. He continued to reaffirm his passion, expressing that Barcelona has always been his first choice and that it has been a lifelong dream since he was a kid. The Portuguese star shared that joining the Blaugrana would be a dream come true.

These comments did not come as a surprise to those who had read an earlier report from AS, which detailed Felix’s longing for a move to Catalonia, once deemed an “impossible dream.”

Atletico Madrid, who acquired Felix from Benfica for a record-breaking fee of €126 million ($141.5 million) in 2019, reacted swiftly to his statements. MARCA reported the club’s displeasure, considering the interview “unprofessional and disrespectful.”

Felix’s agent, Jorge Mendes, a close associate of Barcelona’s president Joan Laporta, is believed to be working on a potential deal that could also involve Manchester City star Bernardo Silva joining the Catalan squad in the 2023/2024 season.

Joan Laporta’s admiration for Felix has been evident, and Barca previously attempted to secure the Portuguese talent in the January 2022 transfer window, but Financial Fair Play constraints posed challenges.

Now, Atletico Madrid has reportedly given the green light to a possible loan with an option to buy, bringing Felix’s dream of joining FC Barcelona closer than ever. Barca has carefully navigated their economic situation to make this high-profile transfer a reality, making it a significant coup for manager Xavi Hernandez’s squad.

With Felix expressing his excitement about the potential switch and negotiations progressing swiftly, it’s speculated that this exciting deal could be finalized as early as this week. Football fans worldwide eagerly await an official announcement, anticipating the star striker’s potential move to the Camp Nou.
