Joao Felix’s Agent Makes Bold Claim Amid Man Utd And Liverpool Transfer Rumours

Benfica starlet Joao Felix has quickly emerged as one of Europe’s most in-demand young talents.

The 18-year-old wonderkid has enjoyed a stunning breakthrough season in the Portuguese top flight and is now being heavily linked with various massive clubs.

Manchester United are said to be closely monitoring Felix, whilst Liverpool reportedly had a bid turned down in January and Wolves are considering an audacious move.

La Liga giants Real Madrid and Barcelona are said to be leading the race, however, as they aim to take Felix to Spain instead of the Premier League.

His agent, Pedro Cordeiro, has now fuelled speculation over his future by hailing his client as a potential future winner of the Balon d’Or and stating he expects him to break the Portuguese transfer record.

“Joao Felix is ​​one of the best talents to emerge from the 1999 generation,” Cordeiro told Portuguese newspaper Record. 

“He has everything to become the most expensive transfer of Portuguese football, and to be a candidate for the Balon d’Or.”

Felix is being tipped to attract a huge fee as Benfica look to encourage a summer bidding war to cash in on their prized asset.

He has a huge release clause of €120million having penned a revised deal recently.
