Joao Felix's future at Atletico Madrid has been the subject of intense speculation over the last few weeks. He is not expected to be in Diego Simeone's plans for the new season, and the club have been hoping to move him on this summer.
However, interest is scarce at this stage. Felix himself is hoping for a move to Barcelona, whom he recently described as his "dream club."
Reports have emerged that Barcelona could look to sign Felix this summer following the soon-to-be-sale of Ousmane Dembele, which will allow them money to spend on new signings.
However, Xavi Hernandez is not keen on Felix joining, and according to Javi Miguel, he will look to take the same approach with Felix as he did with his fellow countryman, Ruben Neves.
Barcelona's hierarchy were keen to sign Neves, whose agent Jorge Mendes has a close relationship with the club, but Xavi blocked the move before the former Wolves midfielder ended up heading to Saudi Arabia.
It appears that Xavi will look to block a move for Felix if Barcelona try it this summer. The 23-year-old has not lived up to his potential at Atletico Madrid, and Xavi believes that he would not be a good fit for Barcelona's style of play.
Signing Felix would be a luxury purchase for Barcelona, and it is not clear that he would improve the team. Xavi is right to be cautious about signing Felix, and he should focus on bringing in players who will make a real difference to the team.
