The Portugal Under-21 ace has impressed Old Trafford scouts, who have watched the starlet on multiple occasions this season.

According to The Sun, Felix has impressed so much, a move in the summer window is a distinct possibility.

Benfica are known for producing a seemingly endless supply of young talent and Felix seems set to follow in the footsteps of Ramires, David Luiz and Angel Di Maria by securing a lucrative move away.

It is understood the Portuguese giants would accept a bid in the region of £100 million for the 19-year-old, who has scored seven goals in 13 Primeira Liga matches.

An Old Trafford source told SunSport: “The club went to see Felix in action and it was all positive. He is seen as a real talent.

“He is definitely someone who is increasingly of interest. He is a clever playmaker and in a similar vein to Portugal legend Deco.

“The scouts saw him during the derby against Sporting Lisbon and he scored. There looks like there is going to be moves for him.”
