A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

Joao Felix is a Portuguese professional footballer who operates as a striker for Chelsea (on loan from Atletico Madrid) and the Portuguese national team. He has recently joined the Blues on a loan deal until the end of this campaign after failing to establish himself as a regular starter at the Wanda Metropolitano.

Felix has banged in five goals and picked up three assists in 20 matches for the Spanish side this season across all fronts. The Portugal international deserves some credit for averaging 1.9 shots and 0.7 key passes per 90 minutes in La Liga. He has even been tidy when linking up play with others around him in the final third, as evidenced by his pass success rate of 77.3% in league football (stats via whoscored).

Felix recently made his nation, Portugal proud in the 2022 FIFA World Cup which was held in Qatar recently.

How Much Did Chelsea Pay To Sign Felix On Loan?

Chelsea have paid a loan fee of €11m (£9.69m) to bring Felix to Stamford Bridge until the end of this campaign, according to Sky Sports. It is understood that the Blues have edged out Arsenal and Manchester United in the race to land the Portugal international on loan.

How Much Will Joao Felix Make While Playing On Loan At Chelsea?

Felix was making over £250,000 per week for his services at Atletico Madrid. Chelsea will now have to cover his entire wages until next summer.

Still, the loan deal could work out in Graham Potter‘s favour as long as he can unlock the best out of Felix at the West London club over the next few months.

The Portuguese sensation is primarily a centre-forward but can also fill in as a left-sided wide player if his manager asks him to do so. Thus, he could serve as an excellent, short-term replacement for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang who has failed to prove his worth at Stamford Bridge this season.
