Benfica wonderkid Joao Felix has insisted that he is happy to stay in Portugal despite links with two Premier League giants.
“My future? I think that only time will tell,” he told Benfica’s official website.
“I am doing well here, I am very happy, I adore the club and these fans who love me.
“I want to seize this moment, play football, have fun doing what I like, and later, in time, things will happen naturally.
“I am very happy at Benfica.”
Benfica are determined to hold out for the full value of Joao Felix’s release clause before considering a deal, which would mean paying out €120 million (£105m).
Joao himself, though, revealed that the astronomic value of his clause has led to no few laughs in the dressing room.
“We have joked a lot about the €120m, and after that a few nicknames sprung up which are perhaps better not to repeat here!” he laughed.
