Although the directive of the FC Barcelona has clear his difficulties for fichar in winter, so much Joan Laporta like Mateu Alemany follow very attentive to any option that offer the market. One of them could arrive from Madrid with the Athletic and Joao Félix, the one who will look for to force his exit of the group 'colchonero' after the World-wide of Qatar, fed up of his relation with Diego Simeone and of the criticisms of the fans.

The Portuguese is the costliest signing of the history of the Atleti (127 million euros) and, in three seasons and average, has not attained to justify his cost in the club. 33 goals and 16 assistances in 129 parties give sample of the irregularity of the luso in his go through Wanda Metropolitan, where Simeone is signalled like one of the main managers of the low level exhibited by the player of 23 years.

In this sense, 'MARK' advances that the one of Viseu has like aim make a big Glass of the World to find offers in the wintry market, which evidenció in his debut in front of Ghana (1 goal). Jorge Mendes, his agent, is conscious of the wish to go out of Joao and already works to find him team, something complicated considering that his value of market has fallen to 50 'kilos' and that still has agreement by three years more, until June of 2026.

With 5 goals and 3 assistances in 20 parties (907 minutes), the luso has been very criticised by the fans 'rojiblanca' in the middle of the crisis of results that crosses the team. Last of his group in the UEFA Champions League and 13 points of the Barça in LaLiga, to the Atleti only remains him the Glass of the King like hope to save the season, in addition to looking for finish, at least, between the four first in League to return to the Champions in the 2023/24.

The options of the Barça for fichar to Joao Félix

If the 'colchoneros' accessed to go out of Joao, the most likely is that it went as yielded with option of purchase, in a similar operation to which the Barça executed in his moment with Antoine Griezmann. The relations between the managerial are good, but the wage of the Portuguese would be a problem for a Barcelona with serious problems to adjust to the limit salarial tax by LaLiga.

Without options for fichar in winter, unless it concretised the exit of a 'heavy weight', for the Barça would be impossible, in this moment, assume the index card of Joao (9 'kilos' net to the year), something that could change in summer. Nevertheless, the forward wants to go out what before and, if it appears an interesting offer in January, presionará to the Athletic so that it leave him go out, as it considers unfeasible his continuity with Simeone in the bench 'rojiblanco'.
