Gary Neville has claimed that Chelsea should’ve already agreed a deal to sign Joao Felix permanently.

He claimed while on commentary for Sky Sports during last night’s game that the club have made a mistake in making him the only January addition that is not currently permanent.

In a dire outing for the Blues against Manchester United, Felix provided a glimpse of joy as they get close to bringing this season to an end.

NEWCASTLE, ENGLAND – MAY 7: Gary Neville working as a TV pundit for Sky Sports ahead of the Premier League match between Newcastle United and Arsen…

He scored the consolation goal in the 4-1 defeat at Old Trafford, as supporters were left begging for this campaign to finally come to an end.

The Portugal international has certainly divided opinion since his loan to Stamford Bridge back in January. This has left many unsure as to whether he is worth the investment that will be required to bring him in.

Neville it seems is convinced though, claiming that he should have been brought in permanently during the last transfer window.

Neville impressed by Felix

He said: “They signed everybody but the one player they should have an option on they haven’t got.”

January saw the club smash their transfer record in order to bring in Enzo Fernandez on deadline day.

They have been extremely impressed with the impact he has had, although this cannot be said for everyone who came in for big money.

Mykhailo Mudryk has struggled to establish himself as a started since his move to England for a variety of reasons.

He was handed the opportunity to start last night, although failed to impress in his hour long showing before he was replaced.

He caught the attention of Neville as well, although for the wrong reasons as he cut a figure that looked extremely short of confidence, and desperate for a new manager to offer him guidance.
