Your morning Chelsea transfer round-up on Saturday, May 27.

Felix clause

Gary Neville has questioned why Chelsea didn't include an option-to-buy in the loan deal which brought Joao Felix to Stamford Bridge in January. The 23-year-old forward scored the Blues' only goal against Manchester United in a disappointing 4-1 defeat on Thursday night.

In March, exclusively revealed that there is no option or obligation for the west Londoners to sign Felix permanently. During his co-commentary of the Blues' clash against United on Sky Sports, Neville said: "He [Felix] is a proper player, just the way he moves with the ball it looks different.
