Manchester City and Manchester United have both placed their bids for Benfica wonderkid João Félix, according to newspaper Record today.
The outlet claims the Eagles currently have four offers on the table, with the senders of only two being revealed, which are the Manchester rivals.
Benfica are reportedly analysing all of them, and apparently, more than one offer stands out. First because a few of them are enough to beat the player’s €120m release clause.
And one of them, which isn’t so high, is seducing the Eagles because it allows the 19-year-old to stay in Lisbon for one more season, moving only in 2020.
Record doesn’t seem to know which of these offers could be from Manchester City or Manchester United. But there are a few details that could help us to make our guesses.
They recall that earlier this week, Marca had reported Real Madrid are offering €80m and letting João Félix stay at Benfica for one more season. So that could be one of them.
Also, it’s been many times reported that the Red Devils would be ready to pay the full amount to have Félix, so they could have one of the €120m offers. But since Record doesn’t say anything this time, let’s wait and see.
