Benfica has reportedly offered Joao Felix a new contract containing a 105 million release clause. £ (120 million) among rumors, he is wanted by Chelsea. According to Mirror Chris, Hatherall, Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has watched the progress of Felix in this season. Current contract No. 10 contains a 45 million release clause £ (51.5 million €). Per Hatherall, according to sources in Portugal, Felix is on the verge of signing the new contract with Benfica and could put pen on paper for documentation on Monday.
The goal against Wales was his fourth in eight matches to the youth of Selecao, and if he continues to impress with the senior team of Benfica, then it may not be too long before chief Fernando Santos of Portugal will call. With the young who are now watching some of Europe’s elite, a new deal will help secure his immediate future in Benfica and put the Portuguese club in a stronger position when they will call.
In addition, the stay will be more beneficial for his development as it gives him the chance to experience first-team football. At another club – especially Chelsea, where young players have a few options – he probably only had the opportunity to play senior football by being loaned.
