It seems Manchester United don’t only go to Portugal to watch João Félix.
As reported by the Portuguese press today, the Red Devils sent scouts to Benfica’s away match against Dinamo Zagreb so they could watch the youngster.
Newspaper Record says United and Juventus both had eyes on the player, who couldn’t really help the Eagles in their 1-0 defeat for the first leg of the Europa League’s round-of-16.
Portuguese papers say the player had a hard time with Dinamo’s defence, and when getting out of his zone, he’s missed many passes and lost several challenges.
That’s not usual for the 19-year-old, who’s been doing well week after week in Portugal. But as clubs as Manchester United usually scout away European games as well, maybe this would have some weight on the decision to sign him.
Juventus were not the only club who accompanied United in Zagreb. Atletico Madrid, Manchester City, Fulham, Wolverhampton, Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund, Bayer Leverkusen, AC Milan, Napoli, Inter Milan, Sampdoria, Sassuolo, Bordeaux, Lille and Slavia Prague have all attended the match as well.
