Atletico Madrid wantaway forward Joao Felix has decided that if Barcelona cannot agree a deal to sign him, he will move to the Saudi Pro League.
The 23-year-old has endured a major public fallout with manager Diego Simeone following his return to the squad from his loan spell at Chelsea last season and according to Relevo writer Matteo Moretto, Felix has already decided to rent out his house in Madrid to new tenants.

Joao Felix set for Saudi switch?
As reported yesterday, Liverpool were considering Felix as a potential last-ditch attacking option if Mo Salah is sold to Saudi Arabian side Al Ittihad but the Portuguese ace is in no mood to wait around to sort out his own future.
If Barca do not come in with an offer Atleti finds acceptable, Felix will be forced into pursuing a move to the Pro League with their summer transfer window not shutting until September 20.
On the pitch, Atleti are coping rather well without Felix and enjoyed a massive 7-0 win at Rayo Vallecano last night: their highest away win in La Liga history.
