Atletico Madrid reject Barcelona’s bid for Felix

Tue 31 August 2021 | 8:09

The Catalan club’s last-minute effort to sign Felix was rejected by the La Liga champions.

Joao Felix

has been linked with a move to Barcelona several times before. The Catalans have made a new bid for the player on the last day of the summer transfer window, but a potential move seems unlikely.

According to

Goal.com

, Barca’s offer, which was made through Jorge Mendes, has been rejected by Atletico Madrid. The Rojiblancos have also refused to enter negotiations on the eve of the transfer deadline.

Felix has made 58 league appearances for Atletico, scoring 13 goals and providing 6 assists. The Portugal international is yet to find his best form at Wanda Metropolitano, but it is too soon for Diego Simeone to give up on the 21-year-old star.

The regaining champions of La Liga consider Felix as a cornerstone of their future squad as they compete to secure back-to-back league titles. On the other hand, Barcelona need to reinforce their firepower after the

departure

of Messi, but their financial struggles have put them in a difficult market position.
