With Manchester United and their neighbours Manchester City being linked to both Bruno Fernandes and João Félix this season, it’s been rare to have a day without updates on each of these rumours in the past few months.
Today, the news brought by newspaper Jornal de Notícias is that the Red Devils have been watching the Benfica wonderkid at the weekend.
Although most of the scouting reports come on the day after the matches, it’s only today that the newspaper reports Manchester United’s visit to the Estádio da Luz on Saturday, where Benfica beat Portimonense 5-1.
Jornal de Notícias claims that after Manchester City’s ‘recent attack’ to sign Félix, the Old Trafford side have now moved to watch him once again.
Despite the teenager’s €120m release clause, Jornal de Notícias says it ‘should not be an obstacle’ for Manchester United, who ‘maintain the will’ to have Félix at the club in the next season.
In 41 appearances for Benfica this season, Félix has 18 goals and 11 assists.
