By verbally agreeing to sign Joao Felix from Atletico Madrid on a six-month loan deal, the Blues have made another significant move during the January transfer window.
Graham Potter is having increasing problems on the field, both in terms of injuries and outcomes. Chelsea lost to Manchester City twice in the span of four days, first dropping the FA Cup on Sunday and then falling 1-0 at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League.
Joao Felix is on loan at Chelsea, and there is no provision in the contract that would allow Chelsea to acquire him permanently from Atletico Madrid in the summer.
Prior to moving, the Portugal international extended his contract with the Spanish team.
