Joao Felix absent from Atletico Madrid training as Barcelona rumors continue

Joao Felix is absent from training on deadline day as speculation over a move away from Atletico Madrid continues, SIA refers to foreign media.

The Portugal international wants to join Barcelona before the window closes, but it remains to be seen if the Catalans can afford a deal.

Yannick Carrasco was also not present as he is expected to join Saudi Arabian side Al-Shabab imminently.

Atletico (via Marca) say that Felix has missed training for personal reasons, which could suggest that he is awaiting news of a move to Barcelona being imminently agreed upon. He will hope that is the case anyway, as he is not in Simeone’s plans for this season.

The development certainly points towards Felix leaving Atletico Madrid within the next few hours, but Barcelona could struggle to sign the Portuguese before the deadline as they have financial issues to attend to. At this stage, the 23-year-old is not a priority, as his countryman Joao Cancelo is instead.
