Chelsea FC has finally completed the loan signing of Joao Felix from Atletico Madrid for the remainder of the season.
The talented winger has been linked with a move after his relationship with Atletico Madrid Head Coach Diego Simeone became strained due to a lack of playing time.
Before completing his loan move to Stamford Bridge, Joao Felix officially extended his contract with Atletico Madrid until June 2027.
Felix had previously been linked with Premier League leaders Arsenal and Manchester United, but Chelsea was able to complete the deal after reaching an agreement with Atletico Madrid for a £3 million loan fee.
