A report claims that Manchester City are leading the chase for Joao Felix, but they will have to pay big to sign Benfica's in-demand forward.

Manchester City are in pole position to sign in-demand forward Joao Felix from Benfica, according to a report.

The 19-year-old is believed to have a pick of clubs to choose from on the back of an incredible campaign that saw him directly contribute to 26 goals in the Primeira Liga and Europa League.

Barcelona, Atletico Madrid and Manchester United are all rumoured to have made contact with Benfica over a summer transfer, but TVI 24 claims that it is Man City who lead the chase.

City boss Pep Guardiola is said to be a big fan of the teenage forward, although the Premier League champions may have to spend big to land their target.

Benfica are reportedly trying their best to further increase Felix's release clause, which currently stands at around £106m.
