Following his goal, Felix replicated Jude Bellingham’s pose atop the advertising board, the sole scorer in the Barcelona versus Rojiblancos showdown. His choice of celebration, given his ownership by Atletico, raised eyebrows.

This action arrived unexpectedly, especially after Atletico’s president, Enrique Cerezo, expressed openness to Felix returning if Barcelona failed to secure him. However, Felix shed light on his celebration in the post-match conference.

Addressing the match, Joao Felix stated, “People have been talking about me all week, but I don’t pay attention to that. I’m just doing my job. I don’t care what people say, I work every day to become better. The celebration was spontaneous. It was a release of what I had been through last summer. It was for my family.”

Amid widespread reports of Barcelona’s keen interest in securing Felix for the upcoming season, uncertainty lingers due to the club’s financial constraints. Despite this, their pursuit to finalize the signing remains uncertain, especially considering Felix’s recent stint at Chelsea in the previous season.

With the future unclear, Felix remains committed to aiding Barcelona’s current campaign, potentially bolstering their financial situation for the upcoming transfer window with successful performances.
