English football club, Chelsea has announced the loan signing of Portuguese football star, Joao Felix from Atletico Madrid.
It was reported that Chelsea will pay around £10m ($12m) for Felix who will only stay at the London based club until the end of this season. The deal has no option to buy as Felix has already signed a new deal at Atletico until 2027.
Speaking to Chelsea’s official website after completing the deal, Felix said:
”Chelsea is one of the great teams in the world and I hope to help the team reach their objectives, so I am very, very happy to be here and very excited to play at Stanford Bridge.”
The footballer’s exit from Atletico comes three and half a year after a €126m (£112.9m) move from Benfica, which makes him the third most expensive signing in the history of the club.
