Atlético confirms the signing of Joao Felix, the most expensive in its history


With a video entitled "Puro Talento", Atlético welcomes its new star, the Portuguese Joao Félix. The rojiblanco club pays tribute to the Museo del Prado in its second centenary and also to its new footballer, the most expensive in its history.

The 126 million that Atlético will pay to Benfica -120 plus the interest for the deferred payment- make it also the fourth most expensive player in history behind Neymar (220 million), Mbappé (180) and Coutinho (140). The Portuguese signed for five seasons with the rojiblanco club.

The age of the player, 19 years old, has not been an inconvenience so that the rojiblanco club has decided to turn it into the flag of his new project. The departure of Griezmann, who has not yet paid the termination clause, leaves a gap in the front of Atletico that tries to fill with one of the most promising young players in European football.

Atlético start their pre-season training on Thursday, but Joao Felix will not start working with his teammates yet. He finished the course later after participating with his team in the League of Nations, in which he won, and will enjoy a few more days of vacation.
