Benfica president Luis Felipe Vieira is delighted with the interest of several major European clubs, including Manchester United, in the best players at the club.

In a chat with Italian news portal Tuttosport, the Benfica chief expressed his happiness that a lot of clubs are keen on signing young Benfica players like Joao Felix and Ruben Dias.

Joao Felix is widely regarded as one of the best young prospects on the European football stage and the young Portuguese attacker has been likened to legends of the game due to his style of playing.

The 19-year-old has been likened to Brazilian football legend Kaka, Portuguese football icon Rui Costa and Portuguese national team skipper Cristiano Ronaldo.

Apart from Premier League giants Manchester United, Joao Felix has been touted as possible transfer addition for other clubs like Juventus, Liverpool, Chelsea and Barcelona.

The 19-year-old has a release clause of £105m having recently signed a new deal at Benfica towards the end of last year.

It was revealed that Benfica turned down a big bid of around £61m from Premier League leaders Liverpool last year.

Joao Felix has scored 10 goals and also provided four assists in the league for Benfica.

In addition, he has scored 11 goals and four assists in 27 games in all competitions.
