January 10, according to reporter Ben Jacobs, Felix’s loan fee is about 9 million pounds, Chelsea
It will also bear all the salaries of the players.
When talking about Chelsea’s loan of Felix, reporter Ben Jacobs said that after internal talks late last night, Chelsea quickly reached a verbal agreement with Atletico Madrid on Felix’s loan, and the two sides will continue to meet.
Atletico Madrid’s asking price is lower than the initial asking price, Chelsea are expected to pay about 9 million pounds, and bear the full salary of the player (5.3 million pounds).
Chelsea would love to see a buyout clause added to their loan deal, but Atletico Madrid’s attitude has always been to loan out and not add a buyout clause, Chelsea know that without a buyout clause, the long-term value of this investment will drop, but the consensus is that they are short-term.
Transactions are required.
Negotiations between Chelsea and Atletico Madrid were very advanced but no signings were made, so other suitors could theoretically still have a chance to make a move, but both Arsenal and Manchester United (currently focused on Werhorst) have made it clear that a loan fee of more than £5m is too high.
Felix was open to joining Chelsea, who had already been let go by the Blues, but Chelsea held talks with Porter to re-emphasize Felix as their priority after two successive defeats to Manchester City.
