Joao Felix, the Atlético Madrid loanee who campaigned all summer for a move to Catalonia, has made a dream start to his time with the Blaugrana.
In the first four games of Barcelona’s season, without Robert Lewandowski, the team struggled to create chances for their star striker. He was often forced to drop deep to find the ball, unable to execute his trademark moves.
But that all changed last Sunday, when Lewandowski finally had a partner in crime in the final third. Felix’s bustling creative presence provided everything the Pole needed, and he assisted in three of Barcelona’s five goals against Real Betis.
Felix, once the second-most expensive teenager in the world and now a player rejected by Chelsea, has finally found his home at Barcelona.
