Joao Félix is being one of the feelings of the European football this year and half Europe is behind him. In spite of everything, the president of the Benfica has affirmed that it is not concerned by his possible course and that right now does not have thought to go back him to renew
This season has left several footballers that not even have fulfilled 20 years that have shined in Europe. The maximum exponent of these players is definitely Matthijs of Ligt. The central of the Ajax has been one of the best defences of the continent this course and has shined with own light in the most stood out competition, the Champions League.
But in addition to him, other juvenile like Joao Félix or Vinicius Jr also have done the same, although to another level. The Portuguese has been one of the leaders of the Benfica this campaign and has carried to the lisboetas to the chambers of Europe League and to be near to attain the title of League. It has marked 19 goals and has given 11 assistances in alone 42 parties. Some impressive numbers for a footballer that aims very high.
In Europe have taken good note of the performance of the perla lusa and there are several clubs of level following him. It says that the Juventus of Turín and the Manchester City are after his steps and even would be had to pay his clause of rescission, that rises to the 120 million euros. It is a very high quantity, but the projection of the forward does to think that of here to two or three seasons could cost even more.
But this interest does not do that the president of the Benfica, Luis Filipe Scallop, was concerned by his footballer. The maximum mandator of the group of Lisbon thinks that with the clause that has and the years of agreement that has signed ensures the continuity of the attacker, at least for the next year.
"It is five years old of agreement and do not have need any to offer him a renewal. Has a clause of 120 million euros and therefore we are not neither mínimamente concerned", explained a safe Scallop. Words that surprise quite been due to how works the market right now. The PSG paid more than 200 millions by Neymar, the Barcelona paid 140 by Coutinho and the Real Madrid is posing arrive to the 150 by Pogba. Pay 120 by Joao Félix would not be so impossible like the president of the Benfica seems to think.
The Athletic of Madrid, interested in the player
The last club that seems to have added to the bidding by the perla Portuguese is the Athletic of Madrid. The rojiblancos ingresarán 120 million euros by Griezmann and besides will save his index card of 23 'kilos' to the year. With all this money, the colchoneros could be one of the hosts of the next market of signings. It says that Joao Félix likes a lot, but Simeone already has announced that they will not buy to big stars to substitute to the French. The forward of the Benfica is not a 'crack', but yes would cost what one, with what seems complicated that the Atleti can do with his services.
