Net Worth, Salary, and Income
Felix began his youth career at FC Porto where he trained for seven years. His time at Porto was painful, and he nearly quit football, but his father convinced him otherwise. Later, he joined the rival team of Benfica where he began his professional football career at the age of 16, playing in the Portuguese second division.
He made his debut with the Benfica B Team in the Liga Pro in 2016 and contributed three goals in 13 appearances. The next season, he became a regular starter for his team in the Liga Pro as well as in the 2016-17 UEFA Youth League where he helped the team to get in the finals.
Felix made his debut for Benfica’s first team in the 2018-19 season against Boavista in August 2018. In the next game, he became the youngest player to score a goal in the Primeira Liga in the Lisbon Derby. After Benfica appointed Bruno Lage, he was a regular starter for the team and showed his true potential in the league scoring 15 goals in his debut season. In April 2019, he scored a hat-trick in the Europa League making him the youngest player to score a hat-trick in the competition.
His performance drew interests from big clubs in Europe like Juventus, Manchester United and Atletico de Madrid. In July 2019, Atletico announced that they had signed the 19-year-old wonder kid, Felix for a seven-year deal for a fee of €126 million. Hopefully, he can fill in the shoe of Antoine Griezmann, whose departure is imminent.
