Manchester City are leading the chase for young Portuguese star João Félix, according to TVi24, with FC Barcelona in the hunt in addition to Atlético Madrid and Manchester United.

The Portuguese channel reported that City are positioned to land the attacker, although Benfica are trying their best to get the biggest possible fee for him. His release clause stands at 120 million euro, but the Portuguese club is hoping to delay an exit and increase his clause.

Barça is making their case as well, but the TV station says it’s possible that Félix could be playing under Pep Guardiola next season.
