Newcastle set to lure Joao Felix with Champions League promises.

Joao Felix, currently on loan at Chelsea, could potentially make a return to the Premier League next season with Newcastle United, provided they secure Champions League qualification. According to Marca, Newcastle is seen as a viable option for Felix, as they might be able to meet Atletico Madrid’s €100 million asking price. The Portuguese international is eager to play in the Champions League, which Chelsea cannot offer. Newcastle currently holds a promising position in third place and is on track to secure a top-four finish this season.

Although Chelsea is interested in extending Felix’s loan for another season, they are hesitant to meet Atletico’s asking price. The possibility of including players like Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang or Marc Cucurella in the deal to reduce the fee has been considered by Chelsea. However, Atletico Madrid remains firm on their stance and will not accept anything less than €100 million for Felix in the upcoming summer transfer window.

A return to Atletico seems highly unlikely for Felix, as his relationship with manager Diego Simeone has deteriorated. It is believed that only one of them will remain at the club next season, and Marca reports that Atletico has already decided to retain Simeone as the manager. Consequently, Felix will need to find a new club for the upcoming season.

In the Premier League, Chelsea and Joao Felix are set to face Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday, with City needing a victory to secure the league title.
