He believes the Portuguese is more up front than inside. Look for a player who makes the last pass
Joao Félix has offered himself, but the club’s economic department also sees his arrival as more than complicated
After returning from his loan at Chelsea, Joao Félix wants to leave Atlético de Madrid as his relationship with him shows Diego Simone It is not good. The Portuguese has never hidden his desire to sign for Barça and this week he expressed it publicly.
Joao Félix, represented by Jorge Mendes, has offered himself to Barça as he is a player that President Joan Laporta has always liked and the Barça club have already tried to employ his services Two summers ago when Griezmann returned to Atlético de Madrid. An exchange was then attempted, but in the end there was no agreement between the two clubs.
Two years later, paths between the Portuguese and Barça cross again, although the chances that Joao Félix will wear the Barça shirt seem slim at the moment. Firstly because Xavi doesn’t see him in the team.
The Terrassa manager sees the Portuguese as a striker rather than a midfielder and believes he’s far from what he’s looking for, which is an inner life with the ability to make the final passAnother Portuguese is Bernardo Silva, his favorite, although the Manchester City player’s arrival is also difficult due to financial reasons.
The economic space
And if the coaches don’t see Joao Félix at Barça, You didn’t just see it from the business sphere. The club continue to face ‘fair play’ issues with footballer registrations and need to release players, perhaps with a big sale, for those chosen to have a record.
The hypothetical arrival of Joao Félix would make things worse ever since Barça should pay Atlético de Madrid a large amount even if it was an injuryNow we must also consider the footballer’s more than important record.
Xavi has three reinforcements (Gundogan, Iñigo Martinez and Oriol Romeu) and would love to have one more before the league begins, and admits his priority is a centre-back, a position Xavi doesn’t see Joao Félix in, and not a right-back, a position he believes Deco, the new secretary, should bolster the entity tech.
