In his latest newsletter, published on Tuesday, July 11, Fabrizio Romano revealed a new nugget in the Joao Felix transfer saga following his loan at Chelsea and this summer's return to Atletico Madrid.
The transfer window holds significant importance for the former Chelsea loanee as he seeks a move away from Atletico Madrid, and PSG might prove to be his most optimal suitor if the French club want to sign him.
All parties involved (the player, his agent, and Atletico Madrid) are keen on finding a suitable transfer solution. Atletico aims to secure a permanent move for Felix, whether through an immediate sale or a loan arrangement with a mandatory buy option.
Felix has expressed appreciation for the project at Paris Saint-Germain, and his talents have captured the attention of PSG's coach, Luis Enrique, who has been following him for a while now.
While a potential move to PSG is on the cards, the situation involving Kylian Mbappe must first be resolved. Of course, if Mbappe leaves PSG this summer that will open massive wage room in PSG's books easing the signing of Felix, as well as create an opening in the XI of PSG where Felix could just slide in.
It is worth noting that Romano mentioned "a Premier League club has explored the option of a swap deal with Atletico for Felix," although such a club has not been revealed.
Atletico, according to Romano "have shown reluctance towards such proposals." The Spanish club want to sell him straight considering Felix's "substantial market value."
For now, Romano said that PSG "intend to put pressure on Mbappe" in order for the Frencham "to give the club a definitive answer this week." The insider added that if Mbappe doesn't provide such an answer by the end of this week, then PSG "will internally discuss a potential price tag to engage in negotiations with other interested clubs."
