Atletico Madrid signed Félix for a club-record transfer worth £113 million. This was the fourth most expensive transfer in football history, the second most paid for a teenager, after the transfer of Kylian Mbappé to PSG, and the highest fee for a Portuguese player leaving the Portuguese top division.

Atletico Madrid are now set to accept half his original cost, three years after.
Felix has impressed in flurries for the Colchoneros, but he only scored once this season, with many critics pointing out that he doesn’t fit in well with Diego Simeone’s style of play.
