Chelsea FC is on its way to completing the 4th player signing of the January 2023 transfer window after beating Arsenal and Man. United to secure the player’s services, according to numerous reports.
Chelsea is reportedly set to agree to a loan deal with Atletico Madrid to secure the services of Joao Felix for a stipulated number of six months. The Portuguese international had been on the radar of top clubs like Arsenal and Manchester United.
The Blues are reportedly offering a 10 million euros fee in wages for a period of six months, and reports also indicate that there would be no inclusion of a buy clause in the contract. This would be a huge boost for Chelsea, which has most of its forward players out injured, and it would also be a good move for Joao Felix, who has been unhappy recently at Atletico Madrid.
Popular sports journalist Fabrizio Romano confirmed that:
Chelsea are now in advanced talks to sign João Félix from Atlético Madrid on loan until June. Deal at final stages — no buy option clause discussed.
Fee will be more than €10m with salary covered and taxes. Talks accelerated after injuries and the last game.
