The 2019 Golden Boy winner took the world by storm last season following a breakthrough campaign with Benfica.

Not only did Felix inspire the club to a 37th Primeira Liga title, but he also nailed a stunning hat-trick against Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League on route to 20 goals and 11 assists in 43 appearances.

Many fans in his native Portugal have already dubbed him the “new Ronaldo”. Helping the national team win the Nations League alongside the captain only bolstered his prospects.

It led a host of clubs to chase Felix’s signature last summer before he settled on a €126m transfer to Atletico Madrid.
