Real Madrid are reportedly interested in a Portuguese wonderkid who has been dubbed the "next Cristiano Ronaldo", who is also being chased by FC Barcelona and Manchester United.
Benfica forward Joao Felix has burst on to the scene in Liga NOS this season, scoring six goals and assisting another three strikes so far.
Overall, he has eight goals in just over 1 000 minutes of play, and was the star of the show in Benfica's 4-2 win over rivals Sporting Lisbon on the weekend, scoring one goal and assisting another strike, and becoming the youngest scorer in a Lisbon derby in the process.
The 19-year-old came through Benfica's famous academy, and joined the first team at the beginning of this campaign, and many experts believe he is the brightest Portuguese talent since Cristiano Ronaldo, who was in the stands at Sporting on Sunday.
However, he has long been monitored by Los Blancos, according to AS. It is believed that Real have been aware of Felix's prowess since he destroyed the club's U19 side in the UEFA Youth Champions League semi-final in 2016/17.
However, other top European clubs such as Barcelona, United, Juventus, Paris Saint-Germain, Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund are also said to be interested in his services.
Benfica reportedly received a €60 million (R916 million) offer from an unnamed Premier League club for his signature in the January transfer window, but rejected it and instead offered the player a new contract, which is believed to include a €120 million (R1.83 billion) release clause and is set to expire in 2023.
Felix's potential has been described as on par with France sensation Kylian Mbappe's, while many in Portugal have compared him to a young Ronaldo.
