Could Benfica star have same impact as Cristiano Ronaldo at Manchester United: Opinion

Could Benfica star have same impact as Cristiano Ronaldo at Manchester United: Opinion - Manchester United

Manchester United look set for one of their most important summers in recent history, as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer embarks on a squad rebuild of sorts.

Big names are expected to come and go at Old Trafford, as the likes of Paul Pogba, Romelu Lukaku and Juan Mata all face uncertain futures, while the club are also thought to be keen to spend big to bring in the right talent to enhance the quality of the squad.

One of those names who has been mentioned is Benfica starlet Joao Felix, with the 19-year-old bursting onto the scene this season to huge effect over in Portugal.

Felix has only had his first season at top level competition this year, but he already looks the part – much like  a certain Cristiano Ronaldo showed United all those years ago in a pre-season friendly in Lisbon.

Sometimes a player comes along who you simply cannot afford to pass up on, and Joao Felix falls right into this category for United.

The teenager is a class act, and his 13 goals this season from attacking midfield show just what a talent he is and could be in the future.

With the United squad in such need of rebuilding, Felix is exactly the sort of player the club need to be targeting if they are indeed eyeing up the foreign market. His speed with the ball, ability to find the back of the net and creative spark are all things which would fit in well with the core of United’s squad, and you can see a big partnership developing between Felix and Marcus Rashford.

At such an important time for the club, money should not be an object, and United must do all they can to snap up the forward ahead of their European rivals.
