The 19-year-old Benfica wonderkid is rumored to be wanted by the world’s biggest football clubs after his performances with his club.
Joao Felix Sequeira is an attacking midfielder who currently plays for Benfica in the Portuguese League.
And his good performances have attracted the attention of the world’s biggest clubs like Juventus, Barcelona, Manchester United, Atletico Madrid, and Borussia Dortmund.
But in an interview, the young footballer has opened the door to the Bianconeri.
“I’m not scared by the numbers that revolve around me, nor by the illustrious comparisons offered by the media, nor the interest of the biggest clubs on the planet,” he was quoted by Calcio Mercato.
“If anything, I’m flattered. I am a professional and I am very fortunate to be doubly well advised.”
“My father was a PE teacher, who worked as an athletic trainer and knows very well how things go in our world,” Joao Felix added.
“He was my first and most important teacher and then I have an agent, who is a phenomenon, the best in the world, Jorge Mendes.”
“My future? It will be a decision that we will make with a mutual agreement. I am not sure,” the young star commented.
“Personally, I give the utmost respect to everyone and I am attracted by the big leagues like the Spanish, English, Italian and French one.”
“All the best Portuguese players went to play to the most important foreign leagues and, of course, I would like to do it, too,” he explained.
“My dreams? I have two great dreams. I would like to play alongside Cristiano Ronaldo because he is simply the greatest. An idol, a world icon, an example for everyone. Playing with a ‘monster’ like him would allow me to grow even more.”
