Tier 1 source: Juventus to open talks with United reported target Joao Felix
- The attacking midfielder wants to play alongside Ronaldo.
- Juve will open talks this week.
- €120m is the release clause for Felix.
- Dybala could leave, as a result.
Fabrizio Romano from Sky Italia reports via Calcio Mercato that Joao Felix's most likely destination for the next season is Juventus.
The super talent from Benfica is eager to play alongside his idol Cristiano Ronaldo while the Italian club are equally eager to sign the player. This week, Felix's agent Jorge Mendes will meet Fabio Patarici, Juve's sporting director.
There's a possibility Juventus would have to free up some space and Paulo Dybala could be a likely candidate.
Manchester United have been linked with the 19-year-old attacking midfielder, too. Club scouts have been spotted at Benfica games. Real Madrid have also been watching the player. Felix has 14 goals and 7 assists in 36 games this season (151 minutes per goal).
Benfica officials didn't really hope to keep Felix beyond the summer but they reportedly wanted at least €120m, the release clause, for their talent.
