Juventus enter Felix race

Juventus are interested in signing Benfica’s Joao Felix, according to La Stampa.

The Italian outlet reports that Juventus chief football officer Fabio Paratici has held talks with Benfica officials about the future of Felix with a view of bringing the youngster to Turin.

The 19-year-old attacking midfielder, capable of performing in any attacking role, has made 56 appearances and scored 17 goals for his current club so far, including their “B” side. He is also a Portugal U-21 international, with four strikes in nine caps up to this point.

He is considered one of the brightest talents in Europe, and the likes of Real Madrid, Barcelona and Manchester United have all reportedly expressed an interest in his signature, but it seems the Serie A champions have not only entered the race, but also taken the next step by contacting Benfica.

If any club ends up signing Felix this summer, they are likely to pay a huge fee as his contract doesn’t expire before 2023.
