Joao Félix, the talented 24-year-old Portuguese striker, appears to be enjoying his time at FC Barcelona and has expressed his desire to stay at the Barça club beyond this season, which marks the end of his loan spell from Atlético de Madrid. However, in his latest interview, he left all Barça fans excited and announced a possible new signing that could give the Catalan team an extra boost.
In an interview with “Spíler TV”, Joao Félix was asked which young footballer he would like to have as a teammate at Barça, and his answer was clear and emphatic: Dominik Szoboszlai, the promising Hungarian midfielder who recently signed for Liverpool in exchange for a whopping 70 million Euros from RB Leipzig.
The choice of Joao Félix is not surprising as the 23-year-old Szoboszlai has proven to be a player of great quality and versatility. So far this season, he has contributed three goals and two assists in the 20 games he has played in various competitions. His ability to control play in midfield and create scoring chances make him a perfect fit for Barcelona’s style of play.
Financial difficulties and long contract at Anfield
Despite the enthusiasm of Joao Félix and the desire to see Szoboszlai in the Barça jersey, there is one major obstacle: the Hungarian has a contract with Liverpool until 2028. This means that his arrival at Barcelona would not be an easy task, and that would be he also do require complicated negotiations between the clubs.
