Premier League giants Manchester United will step up their interest in highly rated Benfica attacker Joao Felix this summer according to reports coming out of the media in the United Kingdom.
Joao has grown to become one of the most exciting young players in European football after his series of impressive performances for his Portuguese club.
The Portugal u-21 international attacker has scored nine goals in addition to five assists in 23 appearances in the colours of Benfica this season.
The Sun claim that the Red Devils will make a big bid for the 19-year-old when the transfer window reopens in the summer.
Joao Felix was the subject of a £61m bid from Premier League title challengers Liverpool only for Benfica to reject it in favour of the player’s full release clause which stands at €120m (£105m).
He recently put pen to paper on a new Benfica contract until the end of the 2022/23 season.
The player recently talked about a possible exit from Benfica in his last interview before hinting that he could join his idol Cristiano Ronaldo at Italian Serie A champions Juventus.
Real Madrid, Barcelona, Chelsea and Wolverhampton Wanderers are all interested in a move for the in-form player.
