A Break Down of How Much Atletico Madrid Star Joao Felix Cost Chelsea
- Joao Felix’s loan deal at Chelsea will not be extended by incoming boss Mauricio Pochettino
- The Portuguese loanee scored four goals in 20 appearances as the Blues finished in 12th place
- A breakdown of the numbers shows just how much Felix cost Chelsea after their £15m deal
Interesting stats show Chelsea forked out almost £4 million for every goal that Portuguese star, Joao Felix scored.
The 23-year old’s spell at Stamford Bridge did not go according to plan, with Chelsea ending up with a 12th-placed finish in the league and no silverware.
His start to life at Chelsea was not ideal either, as he was sent off on his debut after a dangerous tackle on Fulham's Kenny Tete.
These stats put up against the money Chelsea were paying for the forward’s services make for interesting reading since the club paid £6m in wages as well as his £9m loan fee.
Breakdown of Felix’s stats
To break this down even further, Felix appears to be another hit and miss on Todd Boehly’s part as he technically cost the Blues £3.75m for every goal he scored, according to SportsKeeda.
In terms of appearances, the Portuguese forward further cost the club £750,000 each time he went on the pitch in a Blues’ shirt.
That’s £12,000 for every 60 seconds for a total of 1,187 minutes of football played.
Mauricio Pochettino, who was announced as Chelsea’s new boss on Tuesday, May 30, reportedly does not have Felix in his plans, and the former Benfica man will now return to Atletico Madrid, where he is contracted until 2027.
