Portuguese agent Jorge Mendes offers Joao Felix to Barcelona

Joan Laporta, the club’s president, has notably used his connections with renowned agents. Hence his friendship with Jorge Mendes appears to be very deep by now. Big names have regularly been put on the table for Barcelona. The super-agent represents some of Europe’s finest players.

According to Catalan publication SPORT, Mendes appears to have offered Joao Félix to the Blaugranas. Following a disastrous loan spell at Chelsea, Diego Simeone has not shied away from advertising the Portuguese, even indicating Barcelona as a possible destination. This isn’t the first time Barcelona has been linked with the 23-year-old. According to Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona attempted to swap Griezmann with Joao Felix two seasons ago, but Atletico rejected. Despite the fact that money have previously stood in the way of a potential deal, Barcelona has decided to back out this time due to competing sporting aspirations. According to reports, Xavi and his staff are opposed to the signing.

Barca needs a traditional no. 9 backup striker

Felix suffered a chaotic spell at Chelsea, with inadequate contributions and little value added to the club. He was certain to be a strong prospect according to the views of many people. However the player has struggled to establish high-scoring numbers in the league since joining Atletico. Considering the Catalans’ limited use of second strikers as well as a fondness for a conventional number 9, Barcelona’s lack of enthusiasm over Felix doesn’t come across as a bolt from the blue.

Barcelona appear to be more focused on acquiring Lionel Messi as well as resolving the conundrum that exists in the defensive midfield department following Sergio Busquets’ unexpected exit heading into next season. Names like Vitor Roque and Aubameyang appear to carry more weight at the start. Once La Liga approves the Feasibility Plan, a clearer picture of the club’s objectives at the center-forward position will emerge. The ideal remains Roque, but low-cost solutions like as Aubameyang persist in the backdrop.
