Joao Felix transfer: Wolves and Man United have been issued with this message
Clubs looking to sign Benfica wonderkid Joao Felix this summer will have to meet his €120million buyout clause, according to reports in Portugal.
Attacking midfielder Felix, 19, has been one of the stand-out players in the Primeira Liga this season with seven goals and three assists in 13 matches for Benfica, who are currently trailing leaders Porto by a single point.
The Portugal starlet’s performances have led to speculation over a move to some of Europe’s biggest clubs – but Wolverhampton Wanderers are reportedly in pole position to land him this summer.
However, Portuguese newspaper Correio da Manha (via Sport Witness) claims Benfica president Luís Felipe Vieira won’t accept an offer below Felix’s buyout clause.

500+ VOTES SO FAR
For Wolves that would mean smashing their £18million transfer record by spending £105million on a player.
Wolves are set to do business with Benfica this summer for Mexican forward Raul Jimenez. Jimenez has impressed on loan at Molineux this season with 11 goals and six assists in 29 matches.
Wolves will have to pay a further €38million to sign Jimenez permanently.
