The ‘181 Billion’ FW that became a gag… There is only ‘one’ team that wants

The only team that wants Joao Felix is ​​Aston Villa.

It was once evaluated as a resource to lead world football. Born in Portugal, he was nicknamed ‘the second Ronaldo’ because of his early standout and was considered to be the successor to Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. He was just as good at his abilities. He is versatile enough to cover the entire attacking area and his football intelligence and game reading skills are among the best in the world.

He made his presence known quickly. Debuting on the adult stage as a member of Benfica in the 2018-19 season when he was only 19 years old, he made a sensational performance by posting 15 goals and 9 assists in the league alone. He proved that he can work on the big stage, such as recording 3 goals and 1 assist in 6 games in the European Football Federation (UEFA) Europa League (UEL), and received attention from many big clubs.

The destination was Atletico Madrid. Atlético, which sent Antoine Griezmann to Barcelona at the time, invested most of the money earned from his sale in Felix메이저놀이터. The transfer fee was a whopping 127.2 million euros (approximately 181 billion won). A player who still needed proof, but Atlético put their faith in Felix’s potential.

He spent his debut season with so much expectation. However, his performance was below expectations. He could hardly adapt to the Spanish stage. Felix was consistent with poor performance despite getting opportunities to participate in 36 matches including the cup competition. His offensive points are 9 goals and 3 assists. His actual performance was worse than this.

Nevertheless, Atlético continued to believe in Felix. Although not his established starter, he looked to bounce back by sending in over 30 games each season.

But the situation did not change. Eventually, it became a rotation resource for the 2022-23 season and was also involved in a discord with manager Diego Simeone. Felix, who lost his position little by little, pushed for a loan for the second half of the 2022-23 season and left for Chelsea.

Chelsea, who needed to strengthen their attack, made full use of Felix. He scored 4 goals in 20 matches, including cup competitions, and although he lacked superficial attack points, his performance itself was evaluated as not bad.

Felix was also happy with his Chelsea life. Because he let go of the pressure and he was able to play the football he wanted. According to British media ‘Team Talk’, Felix said: “I don’t know about my future yet, but I have been very happy for the past four or five months. Chelsea is the best club. Everyone here treats me really well. My teammates are also very happy. It’s unbelievably good. I love being here.”

He even dreamed of a permanent transfer to Chelsea. However, manager Mauricio Pochettino did not put Felix in his plans. Eventually the loan period ended and he returned to Atlético.

He returns to Spain, but things are not looking good. Atlético have stated that they are not considering using Felix and are willing to let him go if a suitable offer comes along. As a result, he has recently been associated with Aston Villa and Paris Saint-Germain (PSG).

But right now, only one team wants Felix, Aston Villa. According to Spanish media ‘Marca’, Felix tried to contact PSG for a transfer, but PSG made it clear that they were not interested. Also, the media reported that Aston Villa is the only team showing ‘true interest’ in Felix’s signing at this point.
