At the start of last season, Barcelona loaned João Félix from Atlético Madrid, and over the year, he showcased his best qualities. The Portuguese player made a tremendous impression on the entire coaching staff, and despite Xavi's departure as head coach, he also caught the eye of the new manager, Hansi Flick. The German specialist has identified Félix as his primary transfer target for the off-season.

According to the Spanish publication SPORT, Félix himself does not wish to return to Atlético Madrid and play under Diego Simeone. Similarly, the Argentine specialist does not include João Félix in his plans for the team.

It remains uncertain whether the Catalans can reach an agreement with Atlético Madrid to purchase the player, especially considering Barcelona's financial situation. The "Colchoneros" have repeatedly stated they do not wish to loan out their player again and are only considering a sale. These factors have attracted interest in the Portuguese player not only from Barcelona but also from other European clubs and those in the Middle East.

João Félix is a highly versatile player. He can operate on the flanks as well as in the center of the attack. He could play an incredibly vital role for the Catalan club in the next season. During his time at Barcelona, he played 44 matches in all competitions, scoring ten goals and providing six assists.
