Manchester United are facing immediate competition from Atletico Madrid for the signing of Joao Felix, according to Record in Portugal.

Benfica wonderkid Felix is set to be one of the stories of the summer after he burst onto the scene this past season.

He has a £105m release clause, which is set to be met by a number of clubs, according to Portuguese outlet Record.

Old Trafford club are prepared to smash the British transfer record to sign Felix.

That currently stands at the £89m United paid to bring Paul Pogba back to the club from Juventus in 2016.

But Felix is rated so highly that they are now willing to pay the huge release clause.

The Portugal Under-21 international would add creativity and – crucially – goals to a side that has struggled this season, particularly in the final weeks of the campaign.

Felix has no shortage of admirers across Europe after such an impressive campaign in Portugal.

He has also been linked with Manchester City, who could step up their pursuit of Felix if Leroy Sane departs for Bayern Munich.

Real Madrid have been linked with a move for the teenager since April while reports in Portugal over the weekend said Atletico Madrid sent scouts to watch Felix at the weekend.
