Barcelona are said to be advancing in negotiations to sign Joao Felix on loan from Atletico Madrid.
Joao Felix has recently expressed his desire to play for Barca, surprising everyone with his statements.
The Portuguese is said to be fed up with his current club and their fans, most of whom want him to leave.
The striker is not Barcelona’s priority signing. However, the Blaugrana could speed up negotiations for his signature if Ansu Fati leaves.
According to transfer expert Gianluca Di Marzio, Barcelona have advanced in negotiations to sign Felix on loan from Atletico.
The loan fee will be around 7-8 million euros, but it is not yet known if Atletico will request a mandatory buyout clause in the deal.
