As noted by the Daily Mirror, Felix has a release clause of £105million and has already attracted interest from other top clubs.

They translate a report from Corrieo de Manha stating that Liverpool saw a bid of around £60m for Felix rejected.

It remains to be seen who will win the race for the talented 19-year-old, but whoever does will undoubtedly be landing themselves a special player.

Felix looks to have the raw ingredients to make huge strides at the top level of the game, and he could instantly fill an important role at United, who have had their problems in attack.

The Portuguese attacker could perhaps already be an upgrade on the struggling Alexis Sanchez, while he’d be useful at Liverpool as well to ensure they have more options to rotate up front.
