Benifca Confirm They Have Received €126 Million Offer From Atletico Madrid For Joao Felix

It's happening. Benfica have released an official statement announcing they have received a €126 million offer from Atlético Madrid for João Félix.

The 19-year-old, who scored 15 goals in the Primeira Liga last season, has been linked with numerous clubs in recent months, including Real Madrid and PSG.

But it now looks like he'll play under Diego Simeone next season after Benfica released the following statement.

Félix has a €120 million release clause but the above offer is divided in installments and therefore doesn't trigger the clause, according to reports.

If the deal goes ahead, he will become the fourth most expensive player ever.

Reports also suggest that Feix's agent Jorge Mendes is in line to make 30% of the fee.

The news comes after Spanish newspaper MARCA claimed that Atletico Madrid have won the race to sign the teenager, claiming the move is imminent.

Atleti will smash their previous transfer record if the signing of Felix is completed.

Thomas Lemar cost them a cool €70 million from Monaco, but this is different levels.

Thoughts on the future of Joao Felix? Will he be a hit at Atletico?

Let us know in the comments.
