In May of last year, Félix’s girlfriend, Margarida Corceiro, was forced to deny rumors that she had cheated on the Atlético Madrid star with Spanish full-back Porro.
A video went viral showing Porro celebrating after a Sporting Lisbon win, addressing the crowd and giving Corceiro his jersey before the two exchanged a hug.
According to Sunanother clip circulated showing the two kissing in a nightclub, which Corceiro quickly came to deny.
‘If I wanted to be kissing someone, in an intimate moment, it wouldn’t be in Lust, much less in the VIP area with that little balcony and in full view of the entire club.
“I also don’t understand why those gentlemen who took the initiative to record that video and report it in such a beautiful way didn’t remember to record me talking and hugging the other people who were there, the other boys, the players. ‘

The Spanish winger denied the claims at the time and assured that “nobody is being unfaithful to him”
Porro, who had just arrived at Lisbon from Manchester City, also weighed in on the rumors and insisted that “nobody is being unfaithful.”
He wrote in a statement: ‘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.”
Porro had been Tottenham’s main target for the January window, but the deal appeared to have been at risk of collapsing on Monday when the Portuguese side called off negotiations, before a deal was finally reached.
Félix, who was playing for Atlético Madrid at the time, declined to comment on the situation.
Felix, who was an Atletico Madrid player at the time but has since moved on loan to Chelsea, never commented on the situation.
The Portuguese striker secured a six-month loan to Stamford Bridge at the start of the transfer window, but had a nightmare start to his career at Chelsea.
Felix made his Blues debut on their trip to Craven Cottage last month and despite showing sparks of promise, was handed a straight red card for a dangerous tackle.
