Benfica have confirmed that Atletico Madrid have made a €126million (£113m) bid for star forward Joao Felix.

Diego Simeone is looking to rebuild his squad, after a number of big-name players including Antoine Griezmann, confirmed they would be leaving the club this summer.

19-year-old Felix, who has been compared to Cristiano Ronaldo, is clearly part of the club’s plan moving forward.

Benfica have made clear in a statement released on Wednesday evening that they are considering the offer, but that nothing had yet been accepted.

Though the bid is in excess of Felix’s €120m release clause, Atletico’s insistence that the fee is paid over installments means that the Portuguese club is within their rights to reject the offer.

Felix has impressed last season, scoring 15 goals and registering nine assists in just 26 league appearances, drawing interest from around Europe.
