“I love Chelsea!” confession → OUT of Pochettino’s plans…’surprise’ Tottenham move possible

João Felix has been linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur.

Felix has been touted as the future of Portugal. His versatility in playmaking, reading the game, and soccer sense led to him being called the next Ronaldo. What he lacked in physicality, he more than made up for in other abilities.

He made his presence felt at an early age. He made his senior debut for Benfica in the 2018-19 season when he was just 19 years old, scoring 20 goals and providing 11 assists in 43 appearances in league and European competition, including cup competitions.

He then headed to Spain’s La Liga, where Atletico Madrid, who had just sold Antoine Griezmann to Barcelona, identified him as a replacement and spent a staggering €127.2 million on him.

Expectations were high. Although his first season was somewhat lackluster, the club and fans kept the faith. But the pressure was too much for the young Felix to handle.

Eventually, he fell out of contention. Despite consistently playing more than 20 league games each season, his progress was slow, and he was reduced to a rotation player at the beginning of this season. Felix was unhappy with his playing time and was rumored to have fallen out with head coach Diego Simeone. Eventually, he pushed for a move and arrived at Chelsea in the winter transfer window on a ‘loan’ basis.

At Chelsea, Felix was happy. Even though the stats weren’t great, he was able to throw off the pressure and play the kind of soccer he wanted to play. According to British outlet Team Talk, Felix said: “I don’t know about my future yet. But I was so happy for four or five months. Chelsea is the best club. Everyone here has been really good to me. My teammates are unbelievable. I love it here,” he said, expressing his satisfaction with life at Chelsea.

However, he was not in Mauricio Pochettino’s plans. “Felix will not be at Chelsea next season,” says European football transfer market expert Fabrizio Romano. Pochettino has decided, and he’s going back to Atletico.” “Felix is not in Pochettino’s plans,” said the Express, a British publication.먹튀검증

“Tottenham are interested in signing Felix,” the Express claimed, citing Spanish outlet Onda Cerro. Given that he had lost his place at Atletico, it wasn’t an outrageous claim.

Aston Villa were also interested in him. “Villa are one of several clubs who could sign Felix this summer,” wrote Ryan Taylor of the Express. Jorge Mendes has been linked with Villa before. At the time, Mendes preferred a move to Villa over a loan spell at Chelsea.”
