Father claims Jovic to reject Barcelona, Man City for Frankfurt

Father claims Jovic to reject Barcelona, Man City for Frankfurt

Attacking midfielder Felix, 19, became the youngest player to score a Europa League hat trick as Benfica beat Frankfurt 4-2 in Lisbon on Thursday.

Any potential sale of Jovic is complicated by the fact that Frankfurt would owe 20 per cent of any fee they receive for the striker to Benfica.

"If he hadn't scored tonight, everyone would have said he is off-form, but because he scored three, they say he is flying", said Lage. That goal takes him to 26 for the season. He has to go out and enjoy himself and that is what he has done. "He has to develop naturally".

It said Madrid were monitoring Frankfurt striker Luka Jovic, on loan from Benfica, but were "impressed" by Felix.

Felix opened the scoring on the night from the penalty spot after Evan N'Dicka was sent off for the German side.

Almost 83 000 people contracted measles in Europe in 2018, the highest number in a decade. "Our goal is to get people vaccinated". Vaccines are not 100 percent effective, she said, and in some cases - albeit rare - children have suffered serious side effects .

Felix also has 15 goals in 36 appearances for Benfica so far this season, including 10 in the Primeira Liga. Joao Felix must join a team where he will play most weeks, not one where he will be left on the bench or in the reserves to rot.

Eintracht were not finished, however, and substitute Paciencia, raised at Benfica's arch-rivals Porto, put them back in the tie with a looping header from a corner in the 72nd.

Jovic has publicly said he wants to stay at Eintracht if they qualify but the player's father accepts the club may be tempted to cash in if they fall short.

Definitely one to keep a beady eye on. Let us know in the comments section below.
