Joao Felix wants to join PSG. According to reports, Joao Felix will only sign with Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) if he departs from Atletico Madrid this summer.
If Felix were to leave the Wanda Metropolitano, Marca claims that he would be open to moving to Parisians. After spending the second half of last season on loan at Chelsea, the 23-year-old’s future remains uncertain.
During that loan period, Felix underwhelmed, scoring just four goals in 20 games across all competitions. Mauricio Pochettino, the manager of the Blues, has opted against making another attempt to sign the Portuguese international (whether on loan or permanently).
The Ligue 1 champions PSG are allegedly interested in signing him despite his disastrous loan with Chelsea. After losing Diego Simeone’s favor, the assailant appears to be making his way toward the Atleti exit door.
Felix, one of Europe’s top young talents, joined Los Cochoneros from Benfica in 2019 for €127.2 million. He has had a poor experience while playing for Atleti.
In 131 games across tournaments, the Portuguese winger has 34 goals and 18 assists. Under Simeone, he has outgrown his position and maybe let go this summer.
PSG may provide Felix with the chance to revive his stalled career, which he will be anxious to achieve. Kylian Mbappe may need to be replaced by Luis Enrique, the next manager of Paris, given the Frenchman’s close ties to Real Madrid.
Ousmane Dembele of Barcelona is not interested in moving to PSG:
The Ligue 1 champions are not something Ousmane Dembele is eager to join. Despite the possibility that Felix may join PSG this summer, it doesn’t seem like Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele will.
Dembele may leave Barcelona this summer for €50 million, claims Marca (via French Football Weekly). He is not, however, making the most of it and is turning down interest from the Parc des Princes.
PSG’s ongoing UEFA Champions League troubles make them less enticing than they once were. Dembele will travel to preseason with the Catalan giants while keeping his attention on the Blaugrana.
The Frenchman’s previous season was hampered by injury problems; in 32 games across tournaments, he scored two goals and provided 13 assists. His deal with Barca is up for renewal the following year, although the negotiations have not yet advanced.
If Enrique’s team wants to recover from a disappointing 2022–23 season, they will need to focus on other things. So far, they have signed Manuel Ugarte, Milan Skriniar, and Marco Asensio.
