Manchester United ready to pay £105 million release clause of Joao Felix
If there's any club in Europe that cannot wait for the summer transfer window, it is Manchester United. The Red Devils are in one of their worst slumps of recent times (and that's saying a lot) and are expected to undergo a facelift in the summer.
With Woodward ready to back Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the transfer market, the club is willing to throw some big bucks around in order to bring in exciting, young, talent to nurture a more exciting culture of football. Latest reports claim that United are ready to activate Benfica starman Joao Felix's £105 million release clause.
Joao Felix has been an absolute revelation this season and scored 20 goals and assisted a further 11 assists from 43 appearances for the Portuguese side. At 19 years of age, Felix also has his entire future ahead of him. Manchester United have to decide for themselves whether £105 million is worth spending on a young player who may or may not take to life in the toughest league on the planet.Published 20 May 2019, 21:55 IST
