Atletico Madrid have announced the club record €126 million signing of Benfica attacker Joao Felix. The 19-year-old has signed a contract for the next seven seasons.
Days ago, Benfica officially received an offer of €126m for attacking star Joao Felix from Atletico Madrid.
Whilst a move to Los Rojiblancos appears to be imminent, the offer from the club appears to have been submitted in installments rather than upfront – so his €120m release clause has not yet been triggered.
According to the latest reports, the Portugal international has already undergone all the necessary medical tests in Madrid.
Felix, 19, has risen to prominence for the Lisbon-based giants this season and netted 20 goals while registering 11 assists for the club, who regained the Portuguese top-flight.
