João Felix’s loan spell with Chelsea has come to an end, leaving fans and football pundits alike questioning his future. The Portuguese youngster arrived at Stamford Bridge with high hopes, but it seems that new manager Mauricio Pochettino does not have him in his plans for the upcoming season.
Felix’s arrival at Chelsea last year was met with great excitement. The talented forward was considered one of the brightest young prospects in European football and was expected to thrive under the guidance of a club known for nurturing and developing young talents. However, despite showing glimpses of his potential, he failed to consistently impress during his loan spell.
With the departure of former manager Graham Potter, expectations were high that Felix would be given a chance to prove himself under the new regime. However, Pochettino’s arrival has seemingly changed the trajectory of the young Portuguese’s career at Chelsea. Reports suggest that the Argentine manager has different plans for the team and does not see Felix as an integral part of his future vision.
