Man Utd To Match Man City Offer In Chase For £105m Liverpool Target
Three-time European champions Manchester United are reportedly keen to match rivals Manchester City in the race to sign highly rated Benfica attacker Joao Felix this summer.
Portuguese teen sensation Joao Felix is one of the most sought-after players on the transfer market this summer.
Benfica is willing to sell him to any one of the interested as long as his €120m (£105m) release clause is met.
The release clause was raised to the above mentioned amount after he signed a new contract earlier this season.
Premier League giants Liverpool had a £61m bid rejected for the 19-year-old some weeks after he signed that new Benfica contract.
