According to a recent report by Record (via Sports Witness), Manchester United have made an offer for Benfica forward Joao Felix ahead of a potential move later this summer. The same source has revealed that the Red Devils and their rivals Manchester City have both tabled bids to secure the signature of the Portuguese wonderkid in this offseason.
Felix’s Recent Emergence In Portuguese Football
The Viseu born talent had previously featured for teams such as Dragon Force and FC Porto before he finally decided to settle down at the Estádio Sport Lisboa e Benfica. He worked his way up Benfica’s youth setup before breaking out as a first-team starter last summer.
The European sensation has enjoyed a rich vein of form for the Portuguese giants after putting in a string of match-winning displays for them during the recently concluded Liga NOS campaign. The 19-year-old has featured in 43 matches for Bruno Lage’s side this term, registering 20 goals while providing 11 assists across multiple competitions.
Felix is also a key member of Portugal’s Under-21 side having made ten appearances while scoring four times for them so far. His outstanding goal-scoring contributions had helped Benfica claim another Primeira Liga title last season, so the forward already knows what it takes to win trophies at the highest level.
What Makes Felix Such A Highly Sought After Talent?
Felix’s numbers from the last campaign prove that he is among the hottest commodities in European football. He is highly versatile and can operate in multiple roles across the frontline.
The Portuguese starlet primarily assumes the duties of a secondary forward, but he is also capable of influencing the game from the number 10 position or on the left flank. The Benfica whizkid can run without losing possession of the ball at top speed, which causes a lot of headaches for the opposition defenders. He is a lethal finisher in front of the opposing goal and can make plays for his teammates as well in the final third.
How Will The Portuguese Dazzler Fit In At Old Trafford?
Felix has all the skillset required to succeed in the Premier League as long as he is willing to work hard on improving his game on the pitch. The Portuguese youngster has incredible potential who could be nurtured into a quality player at Man United. He is not only good enough to start for the Red Devils on a weekly basis next season but will also add some youthful exuberance to their frontline that has struggled to fire on all cylinders last season.
