Benfica starlet, Joao Felix, continue to attract attention of clubs all over Europe, including Manchester United. Despite not having the best of season, Man U remain optimistic with their transfer plan and will try to sign Felix.
Reports are claiming that United are not afraid of paying the 120 million Euro for the youngster’s clause to Benfica. It’s a big money indeed, but The Red Devils have shown their willingness to make heavy investment on players.
However, it won’t be easy to snatch the Portuguese international as competition for him are tough. Other top teams such as Real Madrid along with Juventus are also keen on capturing the 19-year-old.
Moreover, Man United’s uncertain situations can also be a stumbling block for the player in choosing them. Not being able to offer Champions League football next summer is something that can lessen the interest of many players in this era.
However, The Red Devils do have huge amount of cash along with excellent past reputation in world football. Whether that will be enough to persuade Felix in signing for them, it’s a whole different affair.
One thing for sure, considering their current situation, money is something that United can use as a bargaining weapon. Despite struggling last season, Ole Gunnar Solksjaer’s side are still a side with strong financial power.
