Joao Felix stuns fans with his Barcelona presentation following his transfer, it's gone viral
| Last updated
Joao Felix stunned fans with his silky presentation following his move to Barcelona from Atletico Madrid on deadline day.
The agreement does not include an option to buy, but the 23-year-old was given the whole treatment of a new player as he took part in the club's traditional presentation.
He performed kick-ups in his first touches for the team in front of the assembled media and supporters.
And it's fair to say the Portuguese forward put on a show, delivering an outrageous display of kick-ups.
He juggled the ball with both of his feet, both of his knees and his head as he starred in his official Barca presentation.

Way better than Dembele 😂
Felix's brilliant kick-ups following his transfer to the Camp Nou outfit sent social media wild as they compared it to Ousame Dembele's unveiling in 2017.
One X user wrote: "He looks so at home man. Proper baller."
A second said: "Those kick ups are clean tho."
A third commented: "Dembele barely touched the ball.. it kept running away from him."
A fourth added: "Already better than Dembele tears in my eye."
Another claimed: "He’s gonna ball here. They play his kinda football not Atleti & Chelsea."
Speaking at his presentation, Felix said: "Everyone knows how happy I am to be here. It was a dream since I was a child. I come here to help, I'm one more and I hope it will be a great season."
Club president Joan Laporta added: "Welcome, Félix. With our game system you will be able to express all your talent. I'm very excited, it hasn't been easy.
"I want to thank João Félix for his effort and commitment to make this signing possible. Today is a historic day."
Felix is in Xavi's matchday squad for their La Liga fixture at Osasuna on Sunday.
