Written by Olaleye Oluwadamilola

Barcelona might take a risk by bringing Joao Felix back to the team for the 2024–2025 season on loan with the La Blaugrana not having the financial capabilities to complete a permanent transfer after Xavi Hernandez’s side completed the switch to sign the Portuguese star from Atletico Madrid on a season-long loan having fell out of favor with Diego Simeone.

More Details

The 24-year-old Portugal international who is eager to establish himself in Barcelona has shown glimpses of brilliance in Catalonia and notably scoring the game-winning goal in their 1-0 triumph over Los Rojblancos.

There have been conflicting reports regarding the club’s disagreement over Felix’s long-term plans with some members holding both optimistic and unconvincing opinions about his overall development.

Felix may be sold by Atletico Madrid to Barcelona at the end of the current campaign, but they won’t be able to fetch the €80 million asking price.

According to the most recent report from Diario Sport, Atletico may be able to mediate a compromise of a different loan agreement for the 2024–2025 campaign with a mandatory buyout clause at the conclusion of it.

Meanwhile…

Barcelona’s successful season in winning the league title was largely due to the contributions of their star striker Robert Lewandowski and their back-line goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen. Neither has reached those heights this season, but the Polish striker’s decline has raised questions about whether it is more permanent. The most recent is that Barcelona is investigating Lewandowski’s exit options.

Sport reports that Lewandowski’s performances have become increasingly unsatisfactory, prompting some at the club to think it would be best to let him go in the summer, losing his “untouchable” status as the team’s attack leader. The striker appears happy in Barcelona, so Barcelona will have to move forward with him even if he doesn’t give his approval.

Barcelona recently discussed reaching out to Lewandowski for a summer 2024 transfer through an intermediary, speaking with a Saudi Arabian agent after Lewandowski turned down a lucrative €150 million contract offer from Saudi Arabia last summer.

Barcelona would want €30 million for Lewandowski, but they would settle for €20 million given that his pay would rise once more the following season.
