Benfica wonderkid João Félix is once again linked to Wolverhampton Wanderers today, with the claims coming from the Italian press this time.
Website Tutto Mercato Web claims that ‘not only big clubs’ are interested in the 19-year-old, as Nuno Espírito Santo’s side are involved in the race as well.
The report says that other clubs such as Barcelona, Juventus and Real Madrid are all keen on the wonderkid. However, the fact his career is managed by Jorge Mendes is highlighted as a link to Wolverhampton.
Tutto Mercato Web also adds that João Félix has a valuation of €100m. That could even scare Wolves at first, but still, it’s less than what the Portuguese press has been reporting, since they believe Benfica will only sell the player for his €120m release clause.
It’s worth recalling that Wolves are already expected to spend €38m to sign Raul Jimenez from Benfica next summer, so talks with the Portuguese side should be open.
Mendes may be able to do wonders for Wolves, and there’s proof of that already, but João Félix seems too big of a rabbit to pull out of the hat.
