Joao Felix is making the whole Europe seething with great performances. This makes the top clubs stand still.
After a superb hat-trick against Frankfurt in the Europa League quarter-finals, the 19-year-old “prodigy” Joao Felix is making the whole Europe seething.
In this season, Joao Felix has a great maturity in Benfica colors. The striker is considered the new Cristiano Ronaldo of Portugal football “pocket” 15 goals and 7 assists in every arena. Even, Felix became the youngest player ever to score a hat-trick in Europe’s prestigious No. 2 playing field at the age of 19 and 152 days.
It was Felix’s explosion right in the first season of professional football that many European giants kept an eye on. Being aware of this, Benfica quickly valued his “jewel” up to 115 million euros.
Joao Felix’s agent Pedro Cordeiro did not hesitate to call his client one of Portugal’s brightest talents after Ronaldo’s generation and said that Felix would win the Golden Ball in the future.
Currently, MU is the most zealous club with Joao Felix. According to reputable transfer sources, “Red Devils” have approached both Benfica and Joao Felix to discuss this potential deal. Man City are also following the Portuguese midfielder but not too determined because they own many quality attacking players.
Meanwhile, according to sources from Marca, two “giants” in Spain are Real Madird and Barcelona are willing to pay 120 million euros for Joao Felix. However, with the rejuvenation of the squad, President Perez seems to be more interested in Felix after considering giving up in the Kylian Mbappe deal.
In addition to the above teams, two names from Juventus and AC Milan also greatly appreciated Felix’s talent. Even Juventus is contacting Jorge Mendes to find a way to bring the player close to Cristiano Ronaldo.
It is known that Felix personally admires the man and desires to work side by side with CR7. The source said, Mendes appeared in the city of Turin to meet BLD Juventus in search of a deal to bring Felix to Serie A.
The only obstacle in the fight for 20-year-old striker is the transfer amount of up to 120 million euros. A “big” number in the future investment in a young player. Earlier, in order to retain Felix from staying with the club, Benfica’s president agreed to extend Felix’s contract period to 2023.
