Atlético open a simple transfer of the player with an option to buy
The Blaugrana club won’t make the final move until Abde or Ansu leave
All roads lead to Joao Félix. Barça have yet to make any move for the mattress attacker but the Blaugrana club already have information that Atlético de Madrid would unleash a loan deal with an option to buy the Portuguese striker in a negotiation that failed to reach an agreement. obstacles . Atlético’s goal is to get Joao Félix out of the way to solve the problem they have in the dressing room and with their fans. The operation seems clear but Barça will only take the final step if they manage to get Lenglet and a forward out in the final days of the market.
Joao Félix’s option is popular at the club and there are fewer technical reservations about the striker’s arrival. Xavi knows he needs a goal and the final pass in attack and the Portuguese could give it to him. The Blaugrana coach would prefer other options, but the opportunities all parties would provide to carry out this integration could end up being the deciding factor. And Joao Félix is the first to choose to dress up as Blaugrana and for that the mood is lowered.
At Barça there is no urgency. They are in constant contact with his agent Jorge Mendes and already know the terms on which the footballer could be signed. They see it as a market opportunity but make it clear that there is an overbooking of strikers at the top and the salary cap is currently too high to think of the Portuguese. But at Barça, they insist that there is more than a likelihood that there will be a departure in attacking positions and that the one to rectify this will be Joao Félix.
This week, Jorge Mendes is expected to land at Barcelona once Joao Cancelo’s signing is finalized. It will be at the end of the week and at that meeting Ansu Fati’s situation must also be clear. The Blaugrana club prefer him to be the striker who comes out ahead of Abde but the situation isn’t forced. In case Ansu stays firm, the Moroccan will be the chosen one and in case of a transfer there will be enough leeway to register Joao’s transfer.
