Chelsea reach full agreement to bring in new striker on loan

Chelsea have been in search for more attacking options in this January window and have settled for Joao Felix on a loan deal

Felix has been heavily linked with a move away from Atletico Madrid during this transfer window, with his agent Jorge Mendes offering him to multiple clubs in England, as confirmed by Fabrizio Romano

Romano recently confirmed that Chelsea were in a good position to sign Felix in January, and he has now provided an update on his Twitter, using his famous tagline- Here we go!

Romano has confirmed a deal has been completed for Felix, but has also stated that Felix will sign a new contract at Atletico until 2027.

It appears Atletico still have Felix in their long-term plans, which makes the excessive loan fee Chelsea are willing to pay even more outrageous.

If Chelsea were planning on signing Felix on a permanent in the summer after a successful loan, then the loan fee makes sense, but if Felix is signing a new contract at Atletico, a permanent deal seems unlikely.

It remains to be seen what happens with Felix after the loan deal, but for now, he is set to join the Chelsea squad.
