Chelsea deal for Joao Felix includes permanent option, but Mendes...

Chelsea's loan deal for Atletico Madrid attacker Joao Felix includes a permanent option.

The Portugal attacker, 23, is under contract at Atletico Madrid until 2027 but will assess his future once his temporary spell at Stamford Bridge ends.

Felix's six-month switch to the Premier League cost Chelsea a £10million fee and makes him their fourth highest earner on around £250,000 a week.

And The Athletic reports his loan deal includes a clause that makes a full transfer possible.

It's claimed Felix's agent Jorge Mendes helped engineer the move for the rest of the season to help give the wideman more options for the future.
