João Felix sale "imminent"
Spanish paper Marca claim that the sale of Benfica teenager João Felix is imminent.
According to the publication, Atletico Madrid are looking to sign the forward this summer, and are now prepared to pay the €120million release clause.
Manchester City were the other club willing to invest heavily in the 19-year old, but it appears that Atletico have won the race.
Having already sold Lucas Hernandez to Bayern Munich for €80million and set to sell Griezmann for €120million, Atletico are looking to rebuild their squad for the new season.
The move will make Felix the most expensive Atletico Madrid signing in history, as well as the biggest sale by a Portuguese club.
Felix had an outstanding debut season with Benfica, scoring 15 and assisting 9 in 26 league outings as he thrilled the Benfica faithful.
His performances were of such a high level that Portugal manager Fernando Santos opted to call up the teenager for the UEFA Nations League finals and gave him his debut against Switzerland in the semi-final of the inaugural competition.
That Portugal manager has already given his thoughts on a potential move for Felix, stating in no uncertain terms that he felt the 19-year old was best suited to staying at Benfica for another season, citing Renato Sanches as an example of the error it could be to leave too soon.
Jorge Mendes will be entitled to a huge percentage of the fee, according to reports from Spain, though Benfica have since released a statement vehemently denying such reports.
