Real Madrid and Barcelona join the race for Benfica teenager Joao Felix, according to a report.

Real Madrid and Barcelona have reportedly joined the race for Benfica teenager Joao Felix.

Felix, 19, has scored eight times in 21 appearances for the Portuguese club during the 2018-19 campaign and is seen as one of the brightest young talents in European football.

Liverpool reportedly failed with a £61m bid for Felix during the January transfer window, while Manchester United are believed to have scouted the Portugal Under-21 international in recent weeks.

Felix recently revealed that he is already thinking about leaving Benfica and hinted at a move to Juventus to play alongside his "idol" Cristiano Ronaldo.

However, according to Diario AS, Madrid and Barcelona have now joined the race for the versatile attacker, who only signed a new long-term contract with Benfica in November.

Felix has scored six times and registered three assists in 12 league appearances this season.
