Manchester United are planning a huge offer for Benfica wonderkid Joao Felix, according to Mirror Football via Portuguese newspaper Correio da Manha.
According to the report, the Red Devils are considering a deal to sign the 19-year-old sensation worth a whopping £100m.
It’s learned that United will offer an initial fee of £80m, whilst also offering more than £20m in add-ons to the Portuguese giants.
As per the report, United are contemplating the sale of two of their star players before reinvesting some of the money into the signing of the starlet.
The Benfica chief isn’t interested in parting with his prized asset except Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side meet Felix’s £105m release clause.
United are facing competition for the attacking midfielder’s signature from rivals Manchester City.
Pep Guardiola’s side already look as though they are ahead of United in the chase to sign the youngster.
The Sun claim that City held talks with Benfica’s president and super agent Jorge Mendes in London last Thursday.
