Revealed: The only club Joao Felix will leave Atletico Madrid for this summer

The Portuguese striker is not ready to take a backwards step in his career

Atletico Madrid star Joao Felix is adamant that he will only leave the Wanda Metropolitano this summer if it is to move to Paris Saint Germain, it has been reported.

The Portuguese forward spent the second half of last season on loan at Chelsea, and hinted that he would be happy to stay at Stamford Bridge on a permanent basis despite only scoring four times in 20 appearances during his time in west London.

However, the Blues opted not to make the move permanent, largely thanks to the arrival of Christopher Nkunku from RB Leipzig, who plays a similar role to Felix.

As a result, the 23-year-old is back at Atletico, where he is under contract until 2027 but has struggled to find a connection with Rojablanco boss Diego Simeone, who has often overlooked him in favour of more defensively-minded options.

He is not willing to take a backwards step in his career yet though, despite rumoured interest from Premier League side Aston Villa. In fact, there is only one club that he would be willing to join as of right now.

According to reports in Spain, ‘Felix has decided against a Premier League return, with PSG the only team he is interested in joining ahead of the new season.’

Because of this, he could be sold this summer with Real Madrid thought to be keen, and should he leave Felix may finally be clear to join his favoured club before the new season.
