Manchester United are preparing to break the highest bid figure in the history of the England transfer market.
According to the Sun newspaper, United are ready to pay the penalty clause in the contract of Joao Felix, the star of Benfica Portugal, for inclusion in the summer transfer period.
The penalty clause in Felix’s 19-year contract with Benfica is £ 105 million.
The most expensive deal in British history is £ 89 million, which United paid for the return of Juventus’s Paul Bojba three years ago.

As coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants to reorder the cards at Old Trafford, Manchester United are looking to sign Felix.
The young Benfica star is one of the top names in the summer transfer market, with more than one of Europe’s giants showing interest in Manchester City, Juventus, Bayern Munich and Barcelona.
