Chelsea’s deal to sign Joao Felix is progressing quickly with the Atletico Madrid forward currently en route to London to complete his move to Stamford Bridge.

After a dire run of results and a crippling lack of goal threat, the west London club have decided to pay a massive loan fee to secure the Portugal international until the end of the season.

Chelsea are still trying to negotiate an option to buy Felix at the end of his loan, but talks have advanced to such a stage that the forward has now been granted permission to fly to London.

Although there had been some speculation he was already in the capital, Felix was spotted leaving Atletico’s training complex by El Chiringuito TV’s cameras on Tuesday morning and will now board a flight to London.

A few hours after Felix was spotted driving to the airport, his girlfriend, Margarida Corceiro, uploaded a picture to Instagram aboard a private jet having just touched down in London.

There is a feeling at Chelsea that Felix was hindered by manager Diego Simeone’s more defensive brand of football, while he is viewed as the highest quality attacking addition they can realistically make in the notoriously difficult January market.
