According to reports, Barcelona have reached an agreement with Atletico Madrid to sign Joao Felix on loan.

Luis Rojo of Radio Marca has confirmed that the transfer is a season-long loan deal, but is uncertain if about a mandatory buy option in the deal.

Joao Felix missed Atletico Madrid training earlier on Friday morning, and since revealed his desire to play for Barcelona.

Joao Felix had said recently that he wants to play for Barcelona.

“I’d love to play for Barcelona. Barca has always been my first choice and I’d love to join them,” Joao Felix said in an interview last month.

“It was always my dream since I was a kid. If it happens, it will be a dream come true for me.”
