How good will Joao Felix be for Chelsea?

Felix made one of the most expensive transfers in history when he moved from Benfica to Atletico in 2019 for 126 million euros ($135 million). In 131 appearances for the team, Felix has scored 34 goals.

He scored in Portugal’s 3-2 group-stage win over Ghana, and he also played a role in Portugal’s run to the World Cup quarterfinals in Qatar last month. On Wednesday, Atletico announced that Felix had extended his agreement with them for an additional year, or until June 2027.
