“The artist has arrived” Chelsea, Felix loan signing… Uniform number 11

Chelsea have signed Joao Felix, who played for Atletico Madrid, on loan.

Chelsea announced on its official website on the 11th (Korean time) that “the artist has arrived” and that “Portuguese striker João Félix will be on loan from Atletico to Chelsea and will be part of the Chelsea squad for the rest of the season.”

Felix was a rising star in Portugal. He is a player who recorded a huge transfer fee of 126 million euros (approximately 175.2 billion won) at the time of his transfer to Atletico in 2019.

Felix, who had not missed his starting spot at Atlético, was going through hardships this season. He was not getting a chance to play due to overlapping feuds with coach Diego Simeone. Eventually, after the World Cup period, he was linked with several big clubs in the English Premier League (EPL).

The final victory before the signing was won by Chelsea. Chelsea will sign Felix on loan for the remainder of this season, and all rent (approximately 14.7 billion won) will be fully borne by Chelsea. At the same time as leaving on loan to Chelsea, Felix signed a new contract with Atlético. He extended his contract until the summer of 2027, and the loan transfer did not include a full transfer clause. 먹튀검증

“Chelsea is one of the best teams in the world and I hope to help the team achieve their goals,” said Felix.

It also comes with a new uniform number. Felix was given the number 11 shirt. Felix was wearing number 7 at Atlético, but N’Golo Kante already used it at Chelsea, and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was wearing number 9, which is mainly used by strikers. Felix was given the number 11 for Portugal, and Chelsea’s number 11 was also vacant.

Players who used number 11 at Chelsea in the past include Oscar and Timo Werner.

It is expected to be put into training immediately. “We will be training with fellow team-mates this week ahead of London’s games against Fulham and Crystal Palace,” added Chelsea.
