The saga surrounding João Felix's future continues as Barcelona and Atletico Madrid lock horns over a potential loan deal. While both clubs seem keen on the move, a financial hurdle threatens to derail the negotiations.

Disagreements on the Horizon 

Barcelona desires a straightforward loan agreement for João Felix, with the Portuguese forward returning to Atletico Madrid at the end of the season. This would bolster their attacking options without a significant financial outlay.

However, Atletico Madrid is not willing to let João Felix leave without some form of compensation. They argue that the loan would lead to depreciation in the player's transfer value, and Barcelona should shoulder that cost.

Barcelona is hesitant to take on this additional financial burden. Both teams might need to explore creative solutions, similar to the Luis Suarez situation. In 2020, Suarez terminated his contract with Barcelona and joined Atletico on a free transfer.

While the exact nature of the compromise remains unclear, reports suggest Atletico Madrid might be open to reducing João Felix's asking price. Historically, Barcelona and Atletico have found common ground in negotiations, so a solution could be on the horizon.
