Written by Nuno Travassos, Catarina Pereira and Luís Mateus for A Bola:

Happier now at Barcelona, without the straitjacket imposed on him by Diego Simeone, Joao Felix is finally showing glimpses of his raw talent. Still lacking consistency and continuity but looks closer to the player everyone thought he would become when he made his Benfica debut aged 17 and scored his first Primeira Liga goal a week later, becoming the youngest player to score in the Lisbon derby. Headlines such as “the new golden boy” and “a goal served by a genius” were only an appetiser for what would follow: 11 goals and eight assists in the last 19 games of the season to help Benfica clinch the title, and a €120m summer transfer to Atlético Madrid. He says he is just “a normal guy, not arrogant” to those that know him best. Roberto Martínez is likely to choose between Féliz and Rafael Leão for the left forward position.
