Benfica considering £112.9m offer for Madrid for Joao Felix

Benfica has said they are considering an offer of €126m (£112.9m) from Atletico Madrid for Portuguese forward João Félix. 

The offer is higher than the 19-year-old's release clause, but the LaLiga side wants to pay the massive figure off in instalments. Félix's transfer would be the fifth most expensive in history behind Neymar, Kylian Mbappe, Philippe Coutinho and Ousmane Dembele. Félix would also become the second-most expensive teenager following the €180 paid to Monaco by Paris Saint-Germain for Mbappe last year.

Félix made his senior debut in August and scored 15 goals in the Portuguese top flight last season.

"Atletico Madrid submitted a proposal for the acquisition of [Felix] for a total amount of €126,000,000 euros which is being analysed," Benfica said, in a statement to the Portuguese stock market.

Felix made his international debut against Switzerland in the Nations League semi-final this month. He also became the youngest player in Benfica's and Portugal's history to score a hat-trick in European competition.
