How Mauricio Pochettino missed the chance to sign Barcelona star
Mauricio Pochettino turned down a chance to sign Joao Felix on a permanent basis during the summer, according to football.london.
The Portugal international spent six months on loan at Chelsea last season, and wanted to stay at the club permanently. However, Pochettino didn’t think the 23-year-old was good enough for his side.
AS also claim that Pep Guardiola was offered the attacker, but he also didn’t buy into the idea.
Felix eventually secured a season-long loan move to Barcelona, where he has already impressed during the opening weeks of the new campaign.
