Sporting star Bruno Fernandes and Benfica youngster João Félix have been heavily linked with moves to Manchester City and Manchester United in the past few weeks.
Two days ago, Portuguese newspaper Jornal de Notícias reported the Red Devils sent their scouts to watch the 19-year-old in action for Benfica in his side’s 5-1 win over Portimonense.
It was also explained the 20-time English champions watched the teenager again after the English champions’ ‘recent attack’ to sign him.
Tutto Mercato Web in Italy once again relays interest from the two Manchester clubs and Juventus in signing Félix.
It’s stated that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are now ‘in pole position’ to get the Benfica star in the summer transfer window.
He has a release clause of €120m in his contract and the Old Trafford outfit are ready to table a €75m bid for him, which is €45m short of his valuation.
TMW reports the aforementioned offer from Manchester United may not be sufficient for them to take the player away from Lisbon.
Félix has scored 17 goals and registered eight assists across all competitions.
The inside line on this is unlikely to come from Italy, but TMW’s interest will be because of Juventus links.
