Manchester United transfer target Joao Felix has revealed that his overnight success has lead to girls sending him pictures on social media – sometimes even naked ones.
The 19-year-old, tipped to be the next Cristiano Ronaldo, is on the radar of a number of huge clubs ahead of the transfer window opening in June.
Scouts from around the globe got a close look at the forward in action when Benfica took on Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League this week.
And the youngster didn’t disappoint as he netted a hat-trick in the Portuguese club’s 4-2 victory, causing his price tag to sky-rocket.
Felix was asked about his sudden fame and success in a recent interview, and admitted it has helped him with the ladies.
“The success helped me a lot with the girls. On social media they often send me photos, even naked,” Felix told Portuguese presenter Rui Maria Pego.
But while it seems the Benfica forward is enjoying the attention, he has no plans to settle down with a partner just yet.
“I don’t think of finding a girlfriend, I’m still young,” he added. “There is time for everything.”
