Wolves priced out of Felix move
Benfica starlet Joao Felix is a Wolves target but the figures involved are likely to price them out of a deal.
The 19-year-old is one of the hottest young talents in European football and a host of top clubs are keeping an eye on him with a view to a summer swoop.
However, reports suggest there is a 120million euros release clause in his contract and Benfica will not accept a penny less.
In fact, the Portuguese club want to increase it to 200million euros but that would involve getting Felix tied down to a new deal, which seems unlikely with so much interest.
Such figures are likely to rule Wolves out. However, it has been suggested Felix would be a replacement for Ruben Neves, who would command a similar kind of fee if Wolves decided to cash in.
Even so, a deal still looks unlikely as the likes of Juventus, Liverpool, Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain are also keen and more likely to wrap up a deal.
