The last years of Joao Félix have not been simple. After several seasons trying him fit, of a moment to another the 'Cholo' Simeone in the Athletic of Madrid. It left to Chelsea for the dispute of the second half of the season 2022/2023 and, although it left brushstrokes of his good football, was unable of 'stop' the depression of the 'blues' of the past year (that it has extended ). It returned to Madrid to begin to define his future and had to expect until the last day of the market and signings to concretise his movement to the FC Barcelona.
It was an operation that was conditioned by the sales or exits that could concretise the Barcelona group, but also by the change of opinion of Xavi Hernández (beside his staff) that did not finish to see clear his incorporation and that insisted in that they had more priorities, as the one of a right side and a mediocentro with offensive profile. After several weeks, finished accessing in front of the insistence of Joan Laporta that had the firm intention that the Portuguese dressed of Barcelona and fulfilled his dream.

The relation between both was entirely broken and, while from the club filtered some rebeldía by part of the luso, he excusaba in the little quantity of minutes that was having. To put it in context, in the past season played only seven parties like titling in LaLiga between August and January.
The change of radical posture in the Barça with Joao Félix
It did not arrive with the letters to his favour, but yes with the intention to fulfil his dream to get dressed of culé and recover this spark with which had impressed to all Europe in the Benfica. The before quoted source has aimed that in these first weeks and after a pair of trainings, Joao Félix has attained that those that did not trust he changed of opinion. With his party in front of the Real Betis was the proof that it can be a key player for what needs the Barça and that the illusion can promote it even more.
