Catalan giants Barcelona are set to make a late attempt to sign Atletico Madrid’s wantaway forward Joao Felix.
The 23-year-old has been desperate to move to Nou Camp all summer and according to Fabrizio Romano, the Portuguese ace may finally be about to get his wish.

Is Joao Felix finally set for Barcelona switch?
Barca bosses are currently working hard to figure out if a deal can be arranged whilst also remaining within the strict parameters set by UEFA’s Financial Fair Play Regulations.
Felix has been waiting to receive the green light from Barca since July and will have a nervous next 48 hours to find out if a transfer to the reigning Spanish champions is possible.
The former Benfica prodigy is so desperate to leave Atleti that he has already provisionally accepted a move to the Saudi Pro League if a deal to Barcelona collapses in the last days of the summer window.
