Serie A giants Juventus have emerged as prime candidates to sign Benfica teenager and reported target of Premier League heavyweight Manchester United, Joao Felix.
The wonderkid has caught attention of several clubs in his debut season in the Primeira Liga, scoring 13 goals and providing seven assists.
His brilliant form has drawn the attention of the biggest clubs in the continent to the starlet, who’s seen as the new Cristiano Ronaldo by fans in Portugal.
However, indications now show that Juventus are frontrunners to land the 19-year-old ahead of a number of European elite teams in the summer market.
As per oddschecker.com, French giants Paris Saint-Germain and the Red Devils of Manchester United are also in the race, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer set to be handed a huge summer transfer budget.
In another twist, United are joined by West Ham in the race, along with Pep Guardiola led Manchester City.
Liverpool, Tottenhan, Chelsea, and Arsenal, are allegedly also in the rumour mix, but none of the English heavyweights are as close as Wolves.
Wolves, led by manager Nuno Espirito Santo have moved even more closer to procure the player’s services this summer window, meaning the Premier League mid-table club are now more likely to sign him than 20-time English League champions Manchester United and leaders Manchester City.
Reports claim the defending Premier League champions have earmarked the wonderkid as a replacement for Spain international attacker David Silva, whilst the former Premier League champions, Manchester United are thought to also be eyeing the highly rated starlet.
