Are Joao and Hugo Felix brothers?  – Joao Felix is the older brother of Benfica B midfielder Hugo Felix. Joao, who was born on 10 November 1999 is currently four years older than Hugo, who was born on 3 March 2004.


The brothers initially trained at Porto’s youth academy, before moving to rivals Benfica in 2015.

Joao began playing for the latter’s reserve team a year later and was promoted to the first team in 2018, making his debut at age 17.

He helped Benfica win the league title in his first and only season with them and was awarded Primeira Liga’s Best Young Player of the Year and the Golden Boy award.


Félix signed with Atlético Madrid for a club-record €126 million (£113 million) transfer in 2019, making him the fourth-most expensive football transfer, the second-most spent for a teenager, and the biggest cost for a Portuguese player leaving the domestic league. He helped the club win the 2020-21 La Liga in his second season, ending the club’s seven-year league title drought.

In January 2023, Félix joined Premier League club Chelsea on loan for the remainder of the 2022–23 season.

Upon the appointment of new manager Mauricio Pochettino, Joao was deemed surplus to requirements at Chelsea and was returned to his parent club, Atletico Madrid.
