Felix played 131 times for the Spanish team across all competitions during his more than three-season stint, scoring 34 goals and dishing out 18 assists. His performance for Chelsea fell short of expectations. Felix only managed to score four goals in 20 games for the Premier League team.

Enrique Cerezo, the president of Atletico Madrid, announced Chelsea’s decision on Joao Felix after the Premier League was over. He said, “We got the news that Felix doesn’t figure into the plan of the new Chelsea manager, Mauricio Pochettino. He will therefore return here. Nothing is organized. We’ll find out.
