Everyone at Chelsea is impressed with Joao Felix and his current level of play. Despite having a rough start, the Portuguese have been able to adjust to the style of game played at Stamford Bridge with time.
Nevertheless, not everything is rosy because Felix would quit London if the Blues do not make the Champions League the next season. Enrique Cerezo, the president of Atletico Madrid, reportedly only considers leaving for a sum of at least 100 million euros, according to “Marca.”
Chelsea is capable of paying the money the Spanish capital club is demanding, but only if they participate in Europe’s premier club championship in 2023–24. The club’s owner, Todd Boehly, was drawn to Felix due to his strong starts in the Premier League and Champions League.
The Blues will consider their options carefully before deciding whether to pay the transfer money or whether the former Benfica player should return to Madrid at the end of the current season because they are focused on the quarterfinal matchup with Real Madrid.
