Chelsea have announced the signing of Atlético midfielder Joao Felix on their official website. The English club rented the Portuguese footballer until the end of the season without the right to buy.

Chelsea paid 11 million euros for Felix’s loan. In addition, the London club will take on the obligations of the player’s salary.

Chelsea’s agreement with Atlético does not include a buy option, which means that the player will return to the Spanish club in the summer at the end of the season.

“Chelsea is one of the great teams in the world and I hope to help the team reach their objectives, so I am very, very happy to be here and very excited to play at Stamford Bridge.”
