Romano has since updated his followers, with the deal reportedly close to completion. Barcelona are waiting to sign the documents before it is sealed, though Felix is happy to join Barcelona as he announced it was his 'dream'.
The 23-year-old joined the Chelsea on loan in January and scored three goals in 18 appearances.
Felix previously said he would 'love to join Barcelona' as his Premier League options were limited after an underwhelming Chelsea spell.
Chelsea's squad revamp saw over £250m worth of players leave the club this summer, including Kai Havertz to London rivals Arsenal.
Mateo Kovacic, Mason Mount, Romelu Lukaku, Christian Pulisic and Kalidou Koulibaly joined them in departing the club this summer.
New boss Mauricio Pochettino committed himself to rebuilding the squad, bringing in over £400m in new signings to give the squad a new look after a dismal display last season.
Felix's potential move comes as the transfer deadline looms, as well as joining Manchester City's Joao Cancelo in a move to Barcelona.
