Already stocking the cupboards for a Quadruple repeat (Doubledruple?), Manchester City are reportedly tracking the “next Ronaldo,” Portuguese star João Félix.
It’s going to be a great summer to be Félix’s agent (Pedro Cordeiro). With City tracking the Portuguese teen, and Real Madrid (which we pegged as Félix’s likely destination), AND Barcelona, Manchester United, Atlético Madrid, Juventus, West Ham (!!!) and Borussia Dortmund…Félix’s sale price is surely going well north of €100M. Cordeiro, enjoy your 10%.
Félix is publicly unaffected by all the attention, telling MARCA:
“Right now, I’m only thinking about Benfica. We are heading towards the end of the season in a very close fight for the title. I cannot pause to think about everything that is happening around me.
“My dream has always been to play for the big teams and in the biggest competitions, but, as I said, I am here and I am very happy at Benfica, which, like those teams, is also one of the biggest sides in Europe.”
