Manchester United transfer target Joao Felix isn’t showing any signs of complacency as his breakthrough season continues.

The interest in Felix has ramped up over the last few days following his hat-trick in the Europa League quarter-finals against Eintracht Frankfurt, where he became the youngest ever to perform the feat.

And on Sunday the masterful 19-year-old thrilled those at the Estadio da Luz, including plenty of scouts, as he made two assists and then scored a brilliant third to help the Portuguese giants to a 4-2 victory over Vitoria de Setubal in the Primeira Division.

And he celebrated his own strike in style two, first of all giving us his version of Kylian Mbappe’s crossed arms before then embracing his 16-year-old brother Hugo – part of the Benfica academy, who happened to be standing behind the goal he scored, performing ball boy duties.

Man United are one of a host of top European sides keen on Felix, with Juventus also interested, while Wolverhampton Wanderers are reportedly scouting the player heavily.

He would, though, cost any club a sizeable sum thanks to his €120million release clause, which Benfica wish to increase.

Meanwhile, club president Luis Filipe Vieira has said selling the prodigy right now isn’t essential.

Right now we are not interested in selling Joao Felix, and soon we will increase his release clause,” Vieira told Tuttosport.

“He is one of the best products to have emerged from Portuguese football since Cristiano Ronaldo.”
