Joao Felix has revealed that he gave up significant money to join Barcelona from Atletico Madrid.
The Portugal forward has signed on an initial season-long loan agreement towards the end of the summer window.
Felix has never shied away from the fact that Barca were his “dream” club – much to the annoyance of some of those in the Spanish capital.
“It’s true I gave up a significant part of my salary, but I needed a change,” Felix said.
“I needed to come to a place where I can play my style of football and I have always said I think this is the ideal place.
“Things are going well – I didn’t expect to start so well – and it was an effort I needed to make to be able to find joy playing football again.”
