Chelsea star Joao Felix offers sarcastic response to Newcastle rumors on Instagram
Chelsea star Joao Felix has denounced false links to Newcastle, calling the journalists in question “a bunch of know-it-alls!”
Reports from Portuguese publication Eleven Sports claim the Magpies are the only club willing to shell out the €100m (£89.9m) asking price set by Atletico Madrid.

However, these suggestions were refuted by the player himself after taking to Instagram to downplay the information.
Felix faces the prospect of an uncertain future at club level.
The Portuguese star has spent the last five months on loan with Chelsea where he scored three goals in 14 appearances.
He will return to Atletico Madrid this summer, at least in the short term, but a departure should be pursued by both the club and the player himself.
Felix arrived from the Spanish side in 2019 for a fee of £114m, scoring 34 goals in 131 appearances.
However, after falling out of favor under Diego Simeone, it remains to be seen if he can add to that tally.
