Manchester United are ready to pay the £105m release clause to sign Joao Felix from Benfica this summer, according to reports in the Portuguese media.

Portuguese outlet Record, as quoted by The Sun, is reporting that the Red Devils are looking to bring the 19-year-old to Old Trafford this summer.

The same story says that Felix is attracting interest from a host of other top clubs, including Manchester City, Real Madrid and Juventus.

It is claimed in the same article that Manchester United are ready to smash the British transfer record of £89m to sign Felix this summer as they look to revamp their squad ahead of next season.

The same story confirms that Felix is currently under contract at Benfica until 2023 and that Jorge Mendes is his agent.

Felix has scored 15 goals and made seven assists in the Portuguese league for Benfica this season.

Manchester United are likely to be on the lookout for significant reinforcements this summer as they look to bolster their squad after a disappointing campaign.

The Red Devils ended up in sixth place in the Premier League table and without a trophy after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was appointed as the club’s new boss back in December.
