Joao Felix has admitted he is unsure whether Chelsea will make his loan permanent from Atletico Madrid in the summer.

“They [Chelsea] don’t have a purchase option. They would have to reach an agreement with Atletico,” Felix said in an interview with AS.

“I’ve only been here a few weeks, a month. I am learning everything. I am very comfortable but nobody knows the future.

“I was already looking for a change of scene a while ago because it was difficult to get used to the way of playing.

“I left [Atletico] because my head was already full from trying so hard and not being able to.

“It had to be in this market and I think it has been good for Atletico and for me too.

“Contrary to what many people say, Miguel [Angel Gil, Atletico’s CEO] has always trusted me a lot, he has always broken his arm for me.

“I have a good relationship with him. I appreciate him letting me leave now because I needed it, I wasn’t right any more.

“Miguel has always believed in me and I think he still believes. He sees me as a hope for Athletico, but we’ll see.

“I don’t know what is going to happen in my life, nor is it known what will happen with Cholo [Diego Simeone], as I said, we will have to wait until June.”
