Chelsea's Deal With Atletico Madrid Questioned.

Good evening and welcome back to my daily Sports updates around the World as they arrive in from trusted sources. Tap on the follow link on the top right corner if you've not done so to receive more updates as they arrive in from various parts of the world.

The imminent arrival of Jao Felix on loan from Atletico Madrid will not solve Chelsea's multitude of issues,according to football pundits Micah Richards and Chris Sutton.

Graham Potter's side are in a horrible run of form most recently losing 4:0 against Manchester City in FA Cup and are struggling for goals,having netted only 20 times in 17 premier league matches.

The Blues could be without marquee summer signing Raheem Sterling for a prolonged spell after he picked up a hamstring injury,while Pierre Aubameyang has only netted once in premier league.

The occasion has forced the Blues to swoop for Jao Felix,who has become surplus to requirements at Atletico Madrid after falling of favour with manager Diego Simeon.

Chelsea have agreed to pay a massive loan fee worth around £10 million to sign the Portuguese forward on loan until the end of the season,in addition to covering his wages in full which amounts to another £5m.

In reality,Jao Felix has been far from prolific since leaving Benfica for Madrid in 2019 and both Richards and Sutton are not convinced his arrival will suddenly improve Chelsea's fortunes. Instead,the two says that Chelsea could have gone for a striker than Felix.
