Even though Portugal crashed out in the quarter-final at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, Felix was one of the players who made his country proud in the tournament.

Going to Chelsea from where?

Felix will be teaming up with the Blues on loan from Atletico Madrid where he had featured in 96 games since 2019.

He actually started playing football at Os Pestinhas in 2007 before joining the youth ranks of FC Porto a year later.

What is the issue?

According to the report on GOAL, African supporters are of the views that Chelsea should have signed Ronaldo before he made a move to Saudi Arabia.

They also claimed that the Blues should have also gone for Vincent Aboubakar in stead of Felix.

The Blues' faithfuls expressed confidence that Aboubakar is a man who can give them the goals.

Morgan launches Defence for Ronaldo

Earlier, Sports Brief had reported how Piers Morgan launched a spirited defence for Cristiano Ronaldo, who has been labelled 'finished' after his transfer to Al-Nassr.

Ronaldo's odd yet lucrative switch to the Saudi Arabian club has seen many raise questions about his ambition, while others believe his time as a professional footballer is done.

Morgan however, who is a devout Ronaldo fan, sees nothing wrong with the Portuguese forward's move to the Middle East.

In his estimation, the renowned British broadcaster believes that Ronaldo's move is an outstanding feat at the age of 38, and dubbed it the biggest transfer deal in football history.
