Manchester United and Manchester City lead the race for Benfica superkid Joao Felix.

The Mirror says both Premier League clubs will have scouts watching Benfica teenager Felix in Portugal's Nations League semi-final against Switzerland in Porto on Wednesday night.

United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has targeted Portugal's latest footballing sensation as he begins the rebuilding of his team after a disappointing season.

But he faces fierce competition from Real, who are desperate to land the Benfica teenager, City and also Italian giants Juventus.

Benfica want around £120million and Real have already seen an opening bid of around £80m rejected.

Felix, 19, scored 18 goals in 33 games for Benfica this season and became the youngest player to score a Europa League hat trick since Sergio Aguero when he netted three against Eintracht Frankfurt in the quarter finals in April
