AT Sends Felix to Barsa’s Surplus Resources
Atletico Madrid is seeking to recruit Barcelona striker Memphis Defai.
Recently, Atletico sent off a ‘core’ striker. The main character is Joo Felix. Called the second Ronaldo and considered the future of Portugal, he conquered the Portuguese league as a teenager and headed to Spain. Atletico invested a record amount of 127.2 million euros (about 170.05 billion won) to bring him in and hired him from the first season.
However, his performance was below expectations. In the first season, it was possible to move on to the adjustment period, but it was difficult to revive afterwards. There were not many points of attack itself and the influence was not great. In the end, he became a bench resource this season, and rumors of a transfer emerged as rumors of discord with head coach Diego Simeone emerged.
Since then, Manchester United, Chelsea, and Arsenal, which aimed to reinforce the attack, have approached. His high ransom and weekly salary discouraged him from a full transfer, but he wanted to be brought on loan. The winner was Chelsea. “Felix is heading to Chelsea,” said Fabrizio Romano, an expert in the European football transfer market. It has agreed to a lease transfer. The rent is 11 million euros (about 14.7 billion won), and Chelsea pays all the weekly wages. There is no full transfer option and related documents are being exchanged. “I plan to fly to London within today to conduct medical tests,” he said.
With the season in full swing, Atletico has an unexpected absence. In fact, the small attack depth has become thinner. Currently, only Alvaro Morata, Antoine Griezmann, Angel Correa and Yannick Carrasco are “professional” strikers within Atletico.
In the end, it is rapidly pushing for reinforcement. The main character is Defa of Barcelona. “Atletico has asked Barcelona to sign Defai,” Romano said. Negotiations are due to take place within this week. Atletico has chosen him as Felix’s replacement.
Although it is a high-quality resource, it has lost its place in Barcelona. Until the first half of last season, he led the team’s offense, but later Ferran Torres and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang joined the team, and this season, Robert Lewandowski and Hafinha joined, Usman Dembele’s revival and the return of the Ansu Party were completely out of power. 안전공원
As a result, it was said that the player himself wanted to transfer. Barcelona is also expected to be active in the sale. Although the contract is about to expire in June, there is still no news of the renewal negotiations, and it must be sold within the winter to get the minimum transfer fee.
