Portugal star Joao Felix flunked off rumors of getting back with his former partner. The Atletico Madrid attacker is currently on loan to the club’s league rivals FC Barcelona.
According to reports, the 23-year-old striker has denied rumors of patching up with his former girlfriend Margarida Corceiro. The rumors started after the actress allegedly posted a picture of her along with Felix’s pet dog.
However, Felix cooled off any such claims by mentioning that he was currently single. In one such post which suggested an apparent patch-up of the couple, the Barcelona striker commented, “It’s not true! I am single.”

This started back in June when Margarida announced that she and Felix had split up after a four-year relationship. Although she mentioned that there wasn’t any love lost according to the actress.
Back then the actress posted an old photograph of them both where she wrote a heartfelt message to the fans who had been concerned about the player’s personal lives. In the message, she wrote, “Joao and I achieved goals together for a few years, in a phase of change, growth, and learning. Not having been together as a couple for some time, I am lucky enough to be a part of his life.”
At the end of the message, she appreciated the fans being concerned and mentioned that they were going to be good friends as they always were. She wrote, “We appreciate all the messages from those who really care about us. We are fine, happy, and friends as we always were.”

The couple were reportedly dating from 2019 when the actress was just 17 and the former Chelsea star was 20. Margarida has also been alleged to have cheated on Felix three times. No new news regarding the couple has surfaced recently as many of the couple themselves have given quite a few hints that there is no chance of a possible rebound.
Why did Joao Felix and Margarida break up
The official news of the split of soccer star Joao Felix and his girlfriend Margarida back in June came as a shock to many fans. There had been a few reasons in the past for which many anticipated this to be a possible outcome.
Although neither of the parties has really opened up about why they decided to part ways, there has been a lot of speculation over. Days before the actress announced that the couple broke up, Margarida was seen with F1 star Lando Norris. Many believe she has been secretly dating the racer after getting things over with the soccer star. But nothing official was announced from the actress’s end.
Another speculated reason is the distance which came into play when Felix moved to London for the loan spell Chelsea. It is rumored that the actress never actually liked the idea of a long-distance relationship.

Another reason is thought to be the rumors of the multiple number of times the actress cheated on Felix. It all started last year as the former Sporting Lisbon star Pedro Porro was seen handing his jersey to Joao Felix’s girlfriend Margarida which was followed by a hug.
However, Porro denied such rumors with a social media post. He said, “The situation that is happening yesterday and today is very uncomfortable. I have a special relationship with her, no one is being unfaithful to anyone. My image is not going to be stained by anything and less by things like this. I can do whatever I want. Stop tarnishing the image of the three of you because you don’t.”
Although the actual reason was never disclosed by either of the parties, it was mutually agreed that both would reportedly be friends for life. Felix has also made it clear that he is currently single. The actress too didn’t talk about these rumors in recent times.
