“Missed Opportunity: Manchester City Declined the Chance to Secure a ‘Special’ Player Who Recently Departed Chelsea This Summer”

According to French media, Manchester City passed down the opportunity to sign Joao Felix this summer.

According to AS, the champions cited his unsuccessful time at Chelsea as one of the reasons they chose not to sign him.

The transfer away, at least temporarily, appeared to be necessary for the Portugal international, who had been immensely unpopular with his own supporters during pre-season.

Playing for a team that he has stated is a dream for him, the Portugueseman is now looking like the’special’ player that so many have admired in the past.

City turned down Felix

Things didn’t work out quite as well at Chelsea for him, although he did show flashes of brilliance at a particularly low time at Stamford Bridge.

Nevertheless, it emerged that Mauricio Pochettino was not prepared to bring him in again either temporarily or permanently when he became manager at Stamford Bridge.

Instead, the boss was far more prepared to go into the future with Christopher Nkunku in the position.

It seems his rough time in England did not go unnoticed outside of West London though, as other Premier League sides cited the poor form when they were handed the opportunity to sign him this summer.

It remains to be seen whether a big move to England will ever be on the cards again for Felix.
