Felix was called the second Ronaldo and was evaluated as the future of Portugal. He rose to prominence at Benfica and headed to Spain generating a record amount of 127 million euros (approximately 171.3 billion won). Atletico Madrid, who had sent Antoine Griezmann at the time, needed a ‘superstar’ to replace him, and they selected Felix as the right person.
He was highly anticipated, but his performance was a bit vague. In the first year of his transfer, he scored 9 goals and 3 assists in 36 appearances, including cup competitions. Looking at his record alone, it was not bad, but his performance was difficult to give a passing grade, and he played with ups and downs. Still, he recorded 10 goals and 5 assists last season, and this season, he is active as a key striker for Atletico, recording 4 goals and 3 assists in 13 games.
Although there were ups and downs in his performance, he was still an attractive resource. In particular, Chelsea, which was in dire need of attack reinforcement, actively jumped into the scouting battle, and in the end, it became influential to rent a scout.
Subsequently, reporter Fabricio Romano, an expert in the European football transfer market, said with his signature ‘here we go!’, “Felix is heading to Chelsea. We have agreed to a loan transfer. 11 million euros (approximately 14.5 billion won) in rent and 100% annual salary are Chelsea. Felix extended his contract with Atlético until 2027 before leaving for Chelsea. Felix will fly to London within hours to do a medical and sign.” 메이저사이트
