SHOCKING NEWS: Barcelona have agreed to sign an €80 million FLOP loanee on a permanent deal at the end of the season, it has been reported that the player who is currently on loan at the club from another team will be a potential signing. Barcelona have been impressed with the player’s performances, and they are keen to make the move permanent. The deal is expected to be announced in the coming weeks, and the player will join Barcelona on a long-term contract.


Barcelona reportedly have no plans to permanently acquire the services of Joao Felix, the Atletico Madrid attacker currently on loan at the Camp Nou. The 24-year-old Portuguese player arrived last summer on a season-long deal, following a stint at Chelsea in the previous season’s second half. Despite a decent performance, with eight goals and five assists in 30 appearances across various competitions, Barcelona, as per Luis F Rojo of Marca (via Barca Buzz), are considering extending Felix’s loan instead of committing €70-80 million for a permanent transfer.

Felix, who recently returned from an ankle injury, demonstrated his value by scoring in Barcelona’s 4-0 La Liga victory over Getafe at home. Raphinha, Frenkie de Jong, and Fermin Lopez also found the net in that match at the Olimpic Lluis Companys stadium, keeping Xavi’s team in third place in the league, eight points behind leaders Real Madrid, with 26 games played.

Xavi’s impending departure at the season’s end adds complexity to Barcelona’s decision-making process. After several disappointing performances, including a loss to Real Madrid in the Supercopa Espana final and elimination from the Copa del Rey by Athletic Bilbao, Xavi announced his departure. Barcelona’s La Liga title defense looks increasingly uncertain following a 5-3 defeat to Villarreal at home, leaving them with a significant gap to close in the remaining 12 games.

However, since Xavi’s announcement, Barcelona has shown resilience, going undefeated in six consecutive matches across competitions, securing four victories. Their upcoming fixtures include an away match against Athletic Bilbao in the league, followed by hosting Mallorca and welcoming Napoli for the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 second leg. In the first leg against Napoli, Barcelona drew 1-1 in Naples.

With their domestic title hopes fading and elimination from other competitions, the Champions League represents Barcelona’s most realistic chance of winning silverware this season. As they navigate through a transitional period with managerial changes on the horizon, Barcelona’s focus remains on maximizing their potential in Europe’s premier club competition.
