Chelsea forward Joao Felix has confirmed he wants to remain at the club when his loan spell concludes at the end of the season.
The 23-year-old has only scored three times since arriving in West London from Atletico Madrid in January, but his endeavor has impressed some of the Chelsea faithful who have had little else to cling on to in what has been a dismal campaign.

Speaking to The Secret Scout, the Portuguese forward stated, “I don’t know yet on my future, but these four, five months I love it. I would really like to be here”.

The former Benfica man has shown glimpses of the form that convinced Atletico Madrid to spend $156m on the forward back in 2019. However, Felix has so far failed to live up to the high expectations set and hinted that he wanted to end his nightmare under Atletico manager Diego Simeone, with whom the Chelsea number 11 has a strained relationship when adding, “It’s (Chelsea) a top club, everyone here has been really good to me”.
