Joao Felix’s brilliance at Barcelona doesn’t make Atletico Madrid jealous. In fact, Atletico is pleased because it is related to their selling plan in the summer of 2024.
Felix himself was loaned to Barcelona at the beginning of the 2023/2024 season. The player will be part of Blaugrana for one season, without a purchase option.
So after finishing at Barcelona, Felix returns to Atletico. Well, Los Rojiblancos apparently have no intention of keeping the player, but rather releasing him again.
That’s why Felix’s brilliance during his time at Barcelona will be good news for Atletico. His selling price could rise and provide a profit for Atletico.
Atletico had wanted to sell him permanently in the summer of 2023. Felix, who didn’t fit into the team’s plans and disrupted the atmosphere in the locker room, was the reason.
The intention was not realized. The reason is, Atletico priced Felix at around 80 million Euros, a price that would make anyone reluctant to approach.
Felix’s performance at Atletico did not justify such a high valuation. If the price is lowered, it would not be to Atletico’s liking.
Digging deeper, Atletico didn’t want to lose too much money after buying him from Benfica for around 127 million Euros in 2019.
Now, Felix’s improved performances with Barcelona are a positive signal for Atletico. This means that Felix is ready to be sold at a high price.
So far, in seven matches for Barcelona in all competitions, Felix has scored three goals. His actions on the field have been impressive.
AS reports that Atletico is ready to sell Felix for a minimum of 80 million Euros if the player continues to perform like this until the end of the season.
However, Felix is currently not in high demand. There aren’t many clubs interested in his services, except perhaps Barcelona.
But with such a high price, Barcelona will only consider Felix as one of the options due to the club’s unstable financial condition.
At the end of October, the 2023-2024 La Liga will hold a grand match.
Two teams with the biggest rivalry in Spain, Barcelona and Real Madrid, will face each other in the first edition of El Clasico.
In this match, El Barca will act as the host by hosting Real Madrid at the Lluis Companys Olympic Stadium.
The Barcelona vs. Real Madrid duel will take place on Saturday (October 28, 2023) at 21:15 WIB.
Although the match is still about three weeks away, the hype for the game has been felt by fans of both teams since the beginning of the season.
They can’t wait to see their two pride teams compete after both brought in many top players in the summer transfer market of 2023.
From Barcelona’s side, they managed to bring in five new recruits.
These five players are Ilkay Guendogan, Inigo Martinez, Oriol Romeu, Joao Felix, and Joao Cancelo.
