Benfica attacker Joao Felix is undoubtedly one of the most sought-after players during this summer’s transfer window with several clubs including Chelsea, keen to sign him.
Joao Felix had a breakthrough season during the just concluded campaign and it is not surprising that the major European clubs have been linked with him.
The 19-year-old was previously linked with Chelsea but the Blues have to overcome the transfer ban hanging over their head before any potential move for him.
Chelsea have been handed a two-window ban pending the appeal hearing at CAS (Court of Arbitration for Sports).
Apart from CAS, Chelsea have to deal with Spanish La Liga giants Atletico Madrid following the news that the player is interested in a move to the new Wanda Metropolitano Stadium this summer.
According to the publication from trusted Spanish newspaper AS, Atletico Madrid are interested in Joao Felix who has a release clause of €120m (£105m) in his contract with Portuguese champions Benfica.
He signed a new deal with Benfica during the first half of the just concluded season and that took his release clause to €120m.
Joao Felix had a dream debut season for Benfica after he helped the former European champions reclaim the league title by netting 15 goals in 26 games.
